Re: “Weinberger Discusses Refugees and Plans in State of the City Address

Let's hope this is Miro's last State of the City address.

Re: “Movie Review: 'Life' Offers a Sci-Fi Thrillride on the Space Station

I have to agree with Jollytime. I'd give this one star...a waste of money. The only reason we suffered through the whole movie was to see how it ended.

Re: “Not So Fast: Opposition to Appeal Burlington Town Center Permit

An interesting comment from Don Sinex in another article saying the pending TIF lawsuit would not stop the project so it makes me wonder if the city leaders really needed to give him the $21M all along? Sounds like the Mayor and City Councilors gave away $1.7M in potential annual tax revenue for the next 20 years and didn't have to.

Re: “Knodell Wins Tight Race to Keep Burlington City Council Seat

Thanks for running Genese, Charles S. and Charles W. You all were a voice for those who don't want business as usual in Burlington. Judging by the close results, there are a lot of constituents who agreed with you. Hopefully City Hall will notice they don't have as wide a margin as they thought they did and act accordingly.

Re: “Two Burlington Council Members Pay a Colleague for Campaign Work

The Councilors' responses: "a baseless, groundless suggestion." She "was shocked" " He sends an invoice; we pay it. Done," just show they've been around too long. It's about the appearance of impropriety, potential conflicts of interest and good government ethics. It's time for a change.

Re: “Tall Mall Looms Over Central District Council Race

Yay Genese! Thank you for running and it's time for a change on the City Council. 18 years on the Council is too long....time for some new ideas and faces. And thank you to Charles Simpson too for running in the South End. Good luck to both of you!

Re: “Burlington Candidates File for Town Meeting Day Elections

Time for a change in the Burlington City Council! Vote for Charles Simpson for the South District. Joan Shannon's been in too long and is too supportive of the Mayor's policies. It's critical we have an independent voice on major issues facing Burlington.
