Re: “Farrell Suspends Campaign Manager Over Ingram DUI Video

I just want to know why Mayor Weinberger hand-picked Paco as his representative on the Community Development and Block Grant committe, which give out money to organizations that fight addiction, and how his unfortunate bias will affect his perspective of marginalized and homeless residents.

Re: “GOP Officials Attack Sen. Ingram Over Drunk Driving Arrest

Makes you wonder why Mayor Weinberger would personally appoint him to the Block Grant Advisory Board, where money often goes to help those struggling with addiction or poverty or trauma.

Re: “Can Republican Newbie Alex Farrell Win a Senate Seat in Chittenden County?

The author seemed to fail to mention that his father is THE Farrell, of Burlington College and hyper-wealthy developer fame. Fortunately Vermont is in dire need of another 1%er kid born into wealth who wants to make himself, his friends, and his family wealthier - I can't wait for those corporate tax cuts to trickle down to me!

"Farrell said he wrote in a candidate for president in 2016 and didn't vote for Hillary Clinton or Trump. He sees merit in some of Trump's policy decisions, such as recent changes to the federal tax code. Farrell said the corporate tax cuts in the new law were "a good approach."

Re: “To Restart Construction, Burlington Amends CityPlace Agreement

Imagine if Mayor Weinberger and the city council that couldnt vote against him if their lives depended on it spent 1/4 of this much time protecting renters from Slumlords like the Handys and Rick and Mark Bove?

Its about time we had a council and mayor made up of regular workers, not the top 10%.

Re: “Walters: Hallquist Exits Primary in the Red, Scott Kickstarts Fundraising

I love political campaigns because now I know if I buy Trapp beer or go to Trapp lodge that money will support politicians I completely disagree with. Thanks for the honesty, Trapp family!

Interesting that many of Republican Governor Scotts wealthy donors are also Democratic Mayor Weinberger's donors. I am sure this is a coincidence and nothing more.
