Re: “Rope-a-Dope: Scott Elusive on Future of Pot Bill

Ah yes - the same old tired ridiculous argument. Vermont has a huge drug problem and the hypocrites say "let's legalize pot!" Yup - just what we need - more drugs! Babies being born on them - parents abandoning their children, Why don't you look at the reports of the children being born with pot in their blood and the mother's say "well, I thought because it was legal it was okay." And what message has been sent regarding heroin? That questions doesn't even make sense. Post-legalization says to the kid's it's okay and not harmful - when it is! But who cares about them right? Oh yeah - NOBODY! After all - it's about YOU! Thankfully Phil Scott is brave enough to put up with all of the Progressive/Democrat bull. Good for him!

Re: “Rope-a-Dope: Scott Elusive on Future of Pot Bill

Good work Phil Scott! SOMEONE is looking out for Vermont's youth and not leaning toward their own selfishness. The best word I heard on this a while ago was from someone from the Boys and Girls Club. She stated that this is a bad message to send to our at risk youth. Our youth are the ones who WILL have a negative effect with this passage and I thank you for having the courage to protect them unlike the hypocrites you have to deal with in the legislature. Hang in their and don't listen to the insults from the elitists Progressives and Democrats that consistently show they only care ABOUT THEMSELVES or an AGENDA and do not have the capacity of forward thinking. I only read this article because it was sent to me. 7 Days is a one sided slanted view on ALL issues and reading it is a waste of time.

Stand STRONG Governor Scott! It takes a lot of courage to do the right thing and Lord knows the Dems and Progs don't have that kind of courage.

Re: “North Ave Ballot Question Puts City Officials in Sticky Situation

I sent the following via e-mail to City Attorney Eileen Blackwood on September 11th - I never got a response:

"Please review the question below. What I want to know from your office regarding the question is this: Will the Mayor or Council or City Clerk have any reason to say that the question itself is unacceptable for some reason and therefore will not be put onto the ballot?

Please respond as soon as possible as we have much to do by way of collecting the amount of signatures needed to force this on the ballot.

Petition to put the following question on the Burlington City March 2016 ballot:
Shall the City of Burlington keep four vehicular lanes on North Ave.? Yes__No__

Karen Rowell"

I wonder why it's so vague now. Also Mr. Tracy - if the transportation planning decisions are so complex, why does the DPW head Chapin Spencer not have an engineering degree? If he doesn't need one - why do we?

Re: “Burlington Considers How to Become a Bikable City at Walk/Bike Summit

Chapin Spencer should not even be the head of the Department of Public Works - He doesn't even have the qualifications for the job - Formerly the founder of Local Motion, he was just put in place as the Mayor's whipping boy so they could shove inefficient road designs where bikers previously had NO PROBLEMS getting from point A to point B. Vermonters are smart enough to ride a bike and stay out of the way of vehicular traffic and get where they need to be. We don't need to be dumbed down like the rest of the country. All those thinking they are helping the environment with this so-called movement are forgetting that idling traffic has major negative consequences for the environment. An avid biker myself it makes me angry that once again Vermont put's it's empty baby bottle out to the very in debt Federal Government for these types of programs. When it comes time to re-do the sidewalks, widen them slightly and pave them. Let's go back to Vermonters taking care of themselves. Remember Vermont?
