What we're about

In repelling the threat of a monstrous toxic factory placed just across the street from an elementary school by crony capitalists at the JCDA, we the free citizens of Jefferson County chose to take economic development into our own hands. We joined together in order to:

• Bring prosperity for all members of our community.

• Attract businesses that are compatible with our rich history and verdant landscape.

• Support and expand our favorite businesses indigenous to the region.

• Share knowledge, wisdom and experience with kindred spirits throughout the globe.

We believe the distinction between "pro-business" and "pro-environment" is dated and divisive. We don't see "big business" or "big government" as enemies, we seem them as reality. We encourage complementary consciousness that reconciles opposing positions, proliferates ideas and spurs innovation. We want all people to have meaningful participation in the aggregation, transfer and distribution of capital. We promote transparency, fairness and fun.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to invest, to build, to create and to participate in the success of our common enterprise. We are capitalists, socialists, libertarians, progressives and conservatives who understand that business-as-usual is over. Social capital is here to stay.

Join us at in person or online. Everyone is a Mountaineer, and semper liberimontani!
