Re: “Redacted: How the City of Burlington Keeps the Public in the Dark

[The Public Records Act] explicitly directs courts to liberally construe the Act to provide for free and open examination of records. [T]he Act represents a strong policy favoring access to public documents and records.

- Vermont Supreme Court

With trust in government at an all-time low, I believe that sunshine is the best disinfectant. Vermonters deserve openness and transparency in government. By educating municipal and state employees, elected officials, and engaged citizens on the requirements of government under Vermonts Open Meeting Laws and the Public Records Act I hope to help government officials of all stripes better serve Vermonters.

- Jim Condos, Secretary of State

[I]t is an honor to promote transparency and accountability in state government.

- Doug Hoffer, Auditor of Accounts

[Y]ouve got to tell the public the truth - the good, the bad and the ugly. If we make a mistake and it was my responsibility or whoevers responsibility it was . you have to back things up and say okay, Ive made a policy decision that was wrong .... I would actually go out and tell the press about it first!

Re: “Democratic Leaders Blame 'Squirrelly' Legislator for Override Fail

"This is not the first time that [Sullivan's] gotten squirrelly" - House Speaker Mitzi Johnson

If I may venture an opinion, Madam Speaker, Animal Euphemism experts have widely discredited "Rodent Shaming" the rank-and-file when attempting to round up enough lemmings to lead off a cliff.

Re: “With Iowa Results Unclear, Sanders Declares, ‘Onward to Victory’

Paranoia (n): A chronic form of insanity characterized by:

- gradual impairment of the intellect,

- a continuously simmering grudge against Bernies supporters,

- irrational fears of a Sanders Presidency and /or progressive ideals becoming part of the Democrat platform,

- delusions of persecution that one's lickspittle servility is being intentionally undermined by unknown, evil, anti-Mirovian forces,

- the systematized delusion that all current societal ills are inextricably linked to the Kiss Administration, and

- a compulsive preoccupation with ensuring that a Seven Days article comment section doesnt close before Jonathan Leopold and/or Bob Kiss can be blamed for whatever.

Re: “CityPlace Burlington Developers Provide Glimpse Into New Plans

Sinexs First Law of Development:

The larger the unfilled hole in the ground, the greater the amount of gullibility required to fill it.

Brookfields First Law of Development:

The likelihood of a project ever being completed is inversely proportional to the number of developers who show up to announce they dont have any financing.
