"I represent a rural state and live in a small town {Norwich, Vt.}. Small merchants make up the majority of Vermont's small businesses and thread our state together. It is the mom-and-pop grocers, farm-supply stores, coffee shops, bookstores and barber shops where Vermonters connect, conduct business and check in on one another. ''

-- Congressman Peter Welch
