Dan Feliciano, who ran for governor last year on a platform of greater efficiency in government, was among the 200 Vermonters who lost their jobs Thursday at Keurig Green Mountain.

Feliciano said Friday he saw the move coming and understood the rationale behind it. His job as a production manager at the company’s Waterbury offices ended Thursday, he said.

“It’s business,” he said. “It’s absolutely OK.”

Keurig laid off 330 people companywide and about 200 in Vermont a day after the company announced sales had declined by 5 percent. Company officials said they expect the job reductions to save $300 million during the next three years.

Feliciano, who won 4 percent of the vote in the 2014 gubernatorial race as a Libertarian, is considering running for governor in 2016 as a Republican. 

The Essex resident said he’s not worried about his future. “I have a lot of options,” he said. “I have a other consulting opportunities.”
