Young Vermonter - I have the whole three generation thing, but who is counting. I care deeply about community organizing and getting young people involved in politics. I live in the 1-89 bubble

Re: “Roe-ing Upstream: Vermont’s Lopsided Battle Over Abortion Rights

I would certainly appreciate being made aware of any unethical conduct by my legislators. Need anyone remind us that some of our esteemed legislators saw nothing unethical or even *illegal* about Norm McAllister having sleep overs with his intern at their shared apartment. And what about the incident of sexual harassment that got some media coverage and then was never heard about again? If there really is nothing wrong with the behavior and conduct of our elected officials, why are they so skittish about being transparent?

In the one year we've had an Ethics Commission, that Commission found a credible violation of the state code of ethics. How is that not the take away?

Re: “Walters: Krowinski Feted at Democratic Fundraiser

Was the 2008 election really something to be proud of for Democrats? Coming in 3rd? Real architectural masterclass.

Also, the Dems position on campaign finance is SO laughable. They cannot even take the simple step of refusing corporate campaign contributions. The VT Dems staff is like Gollum and corporate campaign contributions are "the precious."

Re: “Burlington City Council Refuses to Put Park Question on March Ballot

I'm no huge fan of the Burlington City Council as a whole recently, but the idea that there's an inaugural gala for city councilors is pretty funny. I don't think anybody would anybody describe those pictures of half-empty rooms at Nectar's as a "gala"

Re: “Right to Fight: Paco DeFrancis Is Burlington's Sole Republican City Council Candidate

Why can't we get a profile on Jafar?? South End residents would be better served getting some info on someone who seems genuinely interested in bettering the community. Paco is a joke - and I'm pretty sure he used to volunteer for lefty organizations until some personal conflict turned him against lefty policies that actually help people. Seems like Paco's political compass is intimately tied to the willingness of political groups/orgs to put up with him.

I won't be shocked when voters in the South End tell paco, "good riddance."

Re: “New Book Examines How Entertainment Media Shapes Beliefs

When I was at UVM, Prof. Gierzynski was the only Prof. that required students to buy his book about Harry Potter - and it was really dumb. The whole point of the book is that UVM kids are liberal - they also happen to have watched/ read Harry Potter........just like literally every other kid that grew up in the 2000s.

Re: “Walters: Vermont GOP House Candidate Goes Independent

John McCain was shot down on his first combat mission over Vietnam. The only reason he became notable was because his daddy and granddaddy were both accomplished admiral. Not much of a hero by my account
