The governor's schedule this week will take him to farm meetings and a national conference in Washington.
Staff members say Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, will attend the annual meeting of the St. Albans Cooperative Creamery in St. Albans on Saturday. This comes just days after the new five-year farm bill was approved in Washington. Shumlin will also speak to organic farmers in Burlington on Saturday at the NOFA-VT annual meeting.
By the end of the week, national politics is on the schedule. Shumlin, who is the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, plans to attend the winter meeting of the National Governors Association in Washington. That conference begins on Friday and concludes the following Monday.
Here is the governor's public schedule released by his office:
