Re: “Buy Local: Wealthy Vermonters Go Big on State Elections

Let's not kid ourselves about Sue Minter and the carbon tax. Remember what Tony Klein said in 2014. "I think it's at least a three-year process. It won't be in 2016, because you don't do that in an election year. She will try to make it part of RGGI, or something similar, if it won't stand on its own in Vermont. Imagine what 88 cents a gallon would do to farmers, people struggling to heat their homes, truckers, commuters. As if life wasn't hard enough in Vermont already. Blittersdorf could care less about the average Vermonter. He would de-populate rural Vermont and make it all solar panels and wind turbines if he had his way. Just ask him.

Blittersdorf is one of the biggest pieces of garbage in this state. He will attempt to destroy anything standing in his way of making a buck.

Re: “Buy Local: Wealthy Vermonters Go Big on State Elections

When I came under AG investigation (which David Blittersdorf's lawyer Ritchie Berger took credit for) I had to figure out who was behind it, and learned that David Blittersdorf and his legal entities had donated more than $400,000 to candidates over the last 10 or so years, most of it since 2010. Take a look at his donations to the Democratic party in 2010, and gee whiz, the VDP then filed a complaint with the AG against Brian Dubie who was running against Shumlin, during the election. That $400,000+ doesn't include anything since February 2016. And when you look at who his donations go to, it matches the votes and also matches elected officials who for some reason are deaf to hearing anyone else. In the grand scheme of things, Blittersdorf's donations have been a cheap way to buy our state government. One example is the no-bid contract his company got from Gov. Shumlin for his solar trackers now cluttering state lands. Nice to have friends in high places, if you can afford to buy them.

Re: “Road Warriors: Republicans Attack Minter's Irene Record, But Will It Backfire?

I lived in my house with my family in Waterbury Village for 14 years. Our house was a total loss after Irene struck. The worst house in town. We NEVER saw Ms. Minter. Neither did anyone else I talked to in town. Her home town. She is a liar, plain and simple.
