Re: “Staff Turnover Bedevils Vermont Democratic Party

I wouldn't vote for anyone who worked under any of the previous Governors.

What would happen if no decided to vote, is their a statute for that?

Ever notice how there is always a power outage in Montpelier right around election time,
never fails, darn squirrels, happens every time.

Re: “Coventry Landfill Expansion Wins Act 250 Permit

When was the last time testing was done on ALL of the water sources around the Coventry Landfill;
North, South & downstream? Is this information available?

If 3 Million can be spent on eco environmental pilot program for buses, because we all care about the environment..........when and how often is testing being performed on the water sources?

Equally as important; the priority of lead testing in Schools.

Act 250 needs term limits, as does the Landfill.

Re: “Vermont Hemp Company and Grower Agree to Settle Lawsuit

I realize my comment is not related to this article. I posted a comment on vt digger over 2 hrs ago, "comment is awaiting moderation". My comment is in regard to the recent Newport EB-5 Scandal lingers dashed hope.

My hope is someone see this and the home will be marked appropriately, not for me but for my Grandfather and Father.

Like many others following the eb-5 case for years, this case hits close to home. This is only the beginning. Vermonters, not only those who live in the NEK (the area most affected), but throughout Vermont, people want and need to know the truth. Over the years, I've read many comments and bitten my tongue.

My Grandfather was one of the original owners who established Burke Mtn Resort. This story and case are heartbreaking. My Grandfather, a true Vermonter, a hard worker, and with an honest days pay, the days of the conservation camp. My Father, telling me stories of how he remembers growing up there, the family farmhouse, The days of the toll road being built. To this day, there is a home, named which is incorrectly named after my Grandfather, maybe someday this will be made right. I am asking.

Re: “Quiros, Stenger, Face Federal Charges in EB-5 Scandal

Like many others, over the years following this case. This case does in fact hit close to home. This is only the beginning. Vermonters, not only those who live in the NEK (the area mostly affected) but other people throughout Vermont, want and need to know the truth. Over the years, I've ready many comments and had to bite my tongue, without proof. My Grandfather was one of the original owners to establish Burke Mtn. This is heart breaking in many ways. He was a true Vermonter, a hard worker and with an honest days pay, the days of the conservation camp. My Father telling me stories of when the toll road was built, he remembers, the family farmhouse. To this day, there is a home named after my Grandfather marked incorrectly, maybe someday this could be made right.

Re: “Burlington Councilors Press del Pozo on Police Use of Force

In my opinion if any member of the city councilors may have any personal involvements with either the Chief/Mayor first and foremost should be excused.

After viewing the video's, I found them very disgusting to say the least.
There is no need for anyone to be treated that way, ever! It is morally wrong in every possible way.

As for the use of force policy, this information should be have already been available and on the website.
Statistics were quoted for 2018, 2019 is not off to great start. I feel some major changes are needed in the Department starting w/the Chief & Mayor. Inexcusable, people deserve and expect more.

Please explain how a member of law enforcement/officer when placed on administrative
duty are able to receive income? Are there current procedures & protocols in place where a physicians opinion is needed prior to returning to active duty? There should be. This does not seem right ethically or morally, no one else would be given the same fringe benefit. Thank you councilors.

Re: “Burlington Council to Question Mayor, Police Chief About Death Investigation

This articles states the Departments use-of-force policy will be reviewed.

Current bill H.225.

Studies have been researched on the use of CEW's (conducted electrical weapons) and how they
have impacted individuals; both those without a cardiac condition and those with.

How is it determined when to use this non-lethal device?
How would a member of Law Enforcement know if the individual has a cardiac condition prior to use?
