Opinion: Current use program a sweet deal for VTel CEO Michel Guite

Last year alone, Guite’s enrollment in current use — otherwise known as welfare for the wealthy — saved him roughly $11,000 in property taxes.    


  1. a lot of people are putting it to the taxpayer with land use,the state should take a better look at how it is used,land in land use should not be able to be posted

  2. Great piece. Telling it like it is Mr. Kenyon. I'm glad to see you have been watching the man closely and keeping his feet to the fire. Apparently his wife would not move to Hartland due to the hostility, therefore the house wasn't built and probably won't be.In fact very little is seen of her in Vermont these days.

  3. Just as a reminder to Blog readers, as pointed out in the article (and covered on this blog) the public benefits of Mr. Guite's "internet for all program in VT" has been questioned. I am so proud that Shummy and other members our VT House delegation from this area have been strangely silent about this issue. Tell you anything?


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
