Re: “Burlington Officials Sought to Change 'Homicide' Finding in Police Case

I wonder what Del Pozo and the mayor would say if the medical examiner called up the chief or the state's attorney and suggested they didn't know what they were doing when they made a decision to arrest or charge someone with a crime. "Chief, the standard you have to follow for making an arrest is not the one you used, let me explain to you how you should do your job." I can see that going over really well, right? He'd just be trying to "clarify" the situation privately, of course.

Re: “Are the Rich Really Running From Vermont's 'Death Tax'?

DOUG HOFFER - you cite the ITEP data in a discussion about estate taxes, but it appears the ITEP data does not include estate tax figures in its analysis. Why did you cite it, if that is the case?

Re: “Winooski's Historic Mansion Could Be Demolished

The framing of the house may be old, but the rest of it has been gutted and renovated into an apartment building. It's not a 200 year old mansion anymore, and there is nothing worth saving.

Re: “Exodus? Tenants Flee a Newly Built Burlington Apartment Complex

cwinklem, more housing is more housing. A larger housing stock puts downward pricing pressure on housing options at all price points. Just like any other city, big or small, the most affordable housing units aren't those that finished building last week.

Re: “Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets

If someone who was fifty was called on the carpet for teenage shenanigans, you could make an argument for how they have evolved throughout life and perhaps left those shenanigans behind. You can't really make that argument for a 22 year old only barely out of his teenage years, with comments made only as long ago as Trump announcing his candidacy for president.

It doesn't really matter to me if Jafar stays or leaves the race, but he should lose.

Re: “Rules Would Put a Premium on Hemp Products Made in Vermont

It sounds like what is happening is "established" hemp growers are looking for ways to raise barriers to entry to limit competition. It's not really that much different from licensing and inspection requirements for nail salons, massage therapists and most other professional regulation schemes. The rules are an example of regulatory capture by entrenched interests.

Re: “HOPE Works Staffers Resign to Protest Leadership

I read the entire dossier compiled by the staff against the HOPE executive director. What struck me is how much this community has its own language, priorities and principles. So much so that it makes me wonder how transferable these complaints are to the wider working world.
