Blog Site "Green Mountain Daily" Highlights WCAX Report That Project Is Being Done By Maine Contractor T. Buck Construction

Yesterday, the guv dropped the shovel on Vermont’s first federal stimulus construction project, a bridge repair in Richmond. The WCAX piece linked above left out that the general contractor, T. Buck Construction, is headquartered in Auburn, Maine.
Call me a protectionist, but is anyone else disappointed our first stimulus job didn’t go to a Vermont company? And, is anyone else equally disappointed that WCAX neglected to mention anything about WHO will be doing the work?
Hopefully, T. Buck will at least put some Vermonters to work instead of importing labor.
