Re: “At Caucus, Burlington Dems Back Progressive Council Prez Knodell

Our Mayor Miro Weinberger and Councilor Jane Knodell, have forged a new alliance. This alliance is based on the radical idea that being a progressive means actually achieving progressive goals.

The so called Coalition that opposes them claims to be Progressives, but in reality their actions have shown them to have no values whatsoever. They oppose actually building affordable housing, they oppose stormwater infrastructure improvements, and they even oppose plans to re-build city hall park because they do not like the farmers market.

They will tell you they are environmentalists, they will tell you they are affordable housing advocates, they will tell you they are homelessness advocates, but in reality they oppose taking any sort of action which would help anyone.They will also come to dozens of public forums on the same topic, speak at each one, then complain at the end that there has been no time for public input.

The Mayor was right, they are a reactionary fringe with no interest in governing. Their interest is only in yelling and stirring up resentment.
