The bi-weekly "Seat at the Table" series is hosted by Lt. Governor Gray to elevate the voices of Vermonters. Each meeting is dedicated to one topical issue facing Vermont communities, and is moderated by the Lieutenant Governor. The hour-long sessions begin with a panel discussion, followed by the opportunity for all those present to share their questions and comments.
