Town Meeting Day Linkdump

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2007 at 10:01 AM

I thought I'd put this up, though I plan to update it throughout the day.

Here's where to find Vermonters talking about Town Meeting Day online:

Exit Voices: A community blog sponsored by CCTV Center for Media and Democracy, VCAM and Bill Simmon's Candleblog. Post your voting or town meeting experience in the open thread, and read guest posts from Vermont bloggers.

Bill Doyle's blog: The state senator does a survey each year on Town Meeting Day. He's already got some of the responses up. Make sure you fill it out! I was the 50th voter in Winooski this morning, and when I put my survey in the box, there was only one other one there.

UPDATE: This just in — the Rutland Herald/Times Argus has a new political blog, the Vermont View.

UPDATE II: Just got an email from James Leas, one of the organizers behind the impeachment resolutions. Says James:

Impeachment resolution results: Passed in 8 towns so far
Newfane Passed
Middlebury Passed 
Bristol Passed
Richmond** Passed (about 94-46 in paper ballot)
Westminster Passed
Rochester Passed
Vershire Passed
Guilford Passed

** not on the warning; brought up under "other business"

Soldiers Home Now Resolution
results: Passed in 3 towns so far
Plymouth Passed
Newfane Passed
Guilford Passed

Charity Tensel weighs in with an update from Burlington's Ward 5.

From Dan Barlow at the RH/TA's Vermont View:

We can now confirm that 22 towns so far today have voted to impeach the president and vice president.

Springfield, Hartland, Dummerston, Calais, Grafton, Jericho,Woodbury, Roxbury, Planfield, Peru, Jamaica and Newbury are the newtowns added to the apparently growing list of Vermont communities thatwish Bush's term would end 22 months early.

UPDATE III: Here's an Orange town meeting wrap up, courtesy of Walter Jeffries at Sugar Mountain Farm.

UPDATE IV: And Rick Scully chimes in from Tunbridge...

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
