We’re happy to see that Front Porch Forum is recommended and used by many to have important discussions on relevant town issues.
“I am really liking this thread on minimum wage. This kind of discussion is exactly what Front Porch Forum was designed for. We should be having a lot more of these kind of discussions as long as we can keep to the issues and not personalize the debate or attack those we disagree with. Our community and indeed our culture in general would be much better served if we had civil discussion and debate about important issues as though we were speaking face-to-face, FPF seems like an excellent vehicle to have those discussions.”
• Jeff, Town Energy Coordinator, Richmond
“The public must be better informed about this School Capital project. Information put on a school website is not adequate public outreach. We recommend Front Porch Forum as it is a primary source of local information for me and many others in the community.” • John in Morrisville

- Sustain and improve the FPF e-newsletter. FPF’s staff of 16 produce each issue, and provide personalized customer service seven days a week, serving 140,000 members in all 251 towns in Vermont!
- Deliver new features, like FPF’s online Business Directory. More improvements to the FPF experience are under development.
- Increase FPF membership in towns across Vermont and upstate New York. The more neighbors who participate in a Forum, the more vibrant and useful it is for all.
This recent posting from a FPF member says it all:

Across the state, members expressed their appreciation for FPF as a tool to engage and inform neighbors on important issues being voted on in their towns.
“I appreciate this forum and the way this passionate discussion is making it clear that all of us, regardless of our positions, should be sure to vote yay or nay”
• Lydia from Charlotte
“Dear Neighbors, I want to propose a non-partisan FPF discussion thread. The subject is: “Why do so few people vote?” or maybe “Why don’t more people vote?” • Charles from Burlington
“I try to stay current on the goings-on in my community, largely by reading FPF posts, so I am aware that there were house parties, coffee meetings with candidates, and information available online.”
• Jacey from Burlington
“As usual – FPF shines as a great format to accomplish a public awareness / discussion.”
• John from Barre
