Re: “Snooze Alarm: Vermont Democrats' Sleepy Gubernatorial Race

Luckily, my panties remained bunchless. But I was annoyed at myself for falling for this as a legitimate survey. It reminds me of DNC "surveys" that are nothing more than fundraising appeals. I'm sure all parties do this.

Re: “Snooze Alarm: Vermont Democrats' Sleepy Gubernatorial Race

I just got what seemed like a legit political polling call form Long River Research. But it was from Phil Scott's campaign saying biased things about the democratic candidates, and asking me if these "facts" would make me more of less inclined to vote for them. It then asked me if I would vote for each of them against Scott. This made me SURE that I won't be voting for Phil Scott. I'd rather vote for the evil "tax and spend liberal," the person who didn't do as much as possible following Irene, or the candidate whose wife and children live in Norway. (The last fact DID surprise me, if it's true.) The woman on the phone was so pleasant, I didn't want to hang up on her, but Phil Scott owes me 20 minutes of my life back!

Re: “Utah Engineer Hires Local PR Firm to Pave the Way for Vermont Settlement

Thank god for "rural character" policies in the towns involved. Sharon currently has about 1500 residents. 20,000 more won't fit with anyone's idea of "rural nature." It would make Sharon the second largest municipality in the state. No thanks.

Re: “Snelling Resigns Senate Seat to Lead Natural Resources Board

Chris Roy, senate seats have ALWAYS been county based. There is no conspiracy.. Do yo think a MIlton/ Westford /Essex Republican candidate would win in those towns, vs county wide? Interesting theory. Have you looked at results from those town in past elections to come to this conclusion? Have you advocated for these changes? This is the first I've heard anyone complain about the "discriminatory mega-district." Chittenden Co has nearly 25% of the state's population, so the county should get that many senate seats. Breaking up the county's senate seats would certainly be an interesting proposition. I'd love to hear more about your ideas.
