Re: “Cash In: Sanders Leads Pack in Fundraising

Never given a donation to any one of this Vermont triumvirate and never will. Bernie is the most offensive of the three, the epitome of the professional politician who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. Bernie missed all but one Senate vote during the 2016 presidential election campaign. It is hard for me to fathom why anyone supports him. One of the few political dreams I have is the U.S. enacts term limits for Congress and the Supreme Court. Now that would make American great again!

Allegedly said? What is this city coming to? Hearsay I'd say.

Re: “Former AG Sorrell Skips Deposition, Sparks War of Words

Sorrell's arrogance, and that of our current AG, are "deplorable."

Re: “Dorman & Fawcett Won't Operate Burlington Telecom After Sale

War? The future of the planet? What do these heady topics have to do with Burlington Telecom? I for one have not changed my mind. As a full-freight taxpayer, I am looking to recoup some of the loss brought about by government malfeasance when the numbers came to light and grew exponentially during the Kiss administration. I do not agree that most locals want our economy to flourish. Maybe they don't need to care because they get property tax rebate or other hand-outs from the state. I much prefer taking a chance on new management and playing it safe. That the city's own lawyer doesn't think a local buy will stand up to scrutiny ought to be enough to put the kabash on local ownership. Imagine having to start the bid process all over again when it doesn't past muster. No one will be interested then is my guess.

Re: “Trump-Bashing, Romney-Advising Political Operative Stuart Stevens Finds Himself in Vermont

The fact that Trump and some of this team are not politicians IS the whole point. Politicians just don't get that. Which is why I don't like the entrenched , professional politicians who are the real problem in Washington.

Re: “Burlingtonians Speak Out to Save Memorial Auditorium

Most city councilors have supported just about every development project Miro has wanted. Without upgrading significantly the city's wastewater treatment. How ironic that for all the blathering on about respecting people, our "community", We The People don't actually vote on much at the end of the day.

Re: “Fourth Bidder for Burlington Telecom Says He's Out for Good

Locally owned telecom redux run by locals? I'l say it again: NO THANKS. I hope city councilors vote for having a company that's in the actual telecom business buy it & run it who actually has the finances to do so. On a related note, I also think it's time to privatize the airport which continues to lose millions of dollars.
