Burlington investment firm ranks among fastest-growing in U.S. / Mayor wants more city $$ for anti-prison group

by Guy Page

A recently released study by SmartAsset listed Burlington-based One Day In July among the 30 fastest growing registered investment advisory firms in the US. 

The number of registered investment advisory firms (RIAs) has been rapidly increasing as more and more people have realized the value of working with a financial advisor who is a fiduciary on all accounts, for all clients. SmartAsset looked at more than 1,700 RIAs for this study and ranked them based on changes in client account totals and assets under management (AUM) between 2020 and 2023. 

Out of over 1,700 firms, One Day In July ranked 29th. One Day In July started in 2016 with a single office in Burlington. Today the firm has offices in New York, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania, and services clients across the United States. One Day in July is a fee-only fiduciary financial advisor.

Mayor, city councilors want to allocate more $$ to anti-incarceration activists – Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger wants to continue financial support for an anti-incarceration group he says has helped drug addicts get into treatment.

According to reporter Pat Bradley’s WAMC news report, Weinberger would allocate $75,000 of the city’s two-year, $400,000 national opioid settlement to  Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform. Several city councilors agreed. 

The VCJR website claims that ‘unnecessary incarceration hurts incarcerated people as well as their children, families and communities —and makes us all less safe’ and that “Investing in people over prisons reduces crime and makes us all safer. We don’t have to keep warehousing poor people and disabled people in prisons.”

Weinberger claims VCJR has “succeeded in getting into treatment approximately 150 new individuals that were not previously receiving treatment. They’re working very hard in the justice involved community. 

If approved, the allocation would be the third significant appropriation to VCJR, Weinberger said. 

42 overdoses during August – The Burlington Police Department information portal reports that during August, there were 42 (reported and known) drug overdoses. 

Library gets state audio-visual grant – Friends of Fletcher Free Library, Burlington have received a $10,759 Vermont Arts Council grant to support fixed audio/visual equipment to improve arts experiences at the library.

  1. I think there now is something called peer certification for recovering or ex-addicts to become employed in the psyche field to help addicts relate to someone who has experienced addiction and can be empathetic, etc.
    I don’t know what the popularity for AA and NA is in Vermont, but I remember they were a huge hit in NJ years ago. The meeting lists were practically books. But I guess free is not equitable, and of course there’s that nasty 3rd Step.
