Re: “F-35 Critic Rosanne Greco Enters Race for Adjutant General

If they want a competent woman then nominate Martha Rainville. The guard does not need a Grecco as the aDJ General.

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

3300 is a majority?
In 2018 the population of Burlington was over 42,000

That is only around 8% of the population of Burlington.

Re: “Migrant LGBTQ Leader Faces Deportation After ICE Arrest at Courthouse

Jane DUI is "Driving Under the Influence" of a drug. Alcohol is a drug, Pot is a drug.
I have zero tolerance for anyone driving under the influence of ANY drug. They should have severe consequences for endangering others lives.
I would be highly suspect that an illegal alien filed any tax returns as well.
As for your rant about protecting our tax dollars, that is problem with arguments like this..Why do we have to pay for people who do not contribute to the system? Maybe you have no problem giving the government all your money, but some of us are saving so we can retire and live in VT.

Re: “Media Note: Vermont Statehouse Tightens Press Access Following Inaugural Outburst

I see no issue with submitting your information to verify you are a member of the press. Why not know who is there and who is not?

Re: “What’s Left? Young Burlington Progs Forge Ahead Without Jane Knodell

@Mark and @leaterhune, it is astounding how you can view what the Mayor has done to reduce the debt created by years of Prog spending and the theft of $17 million Leopold and Kiss committed.
The airport is now profitable instead of being a slush fund, the pension still is not funded 100% but is in better shape, The city's bond rating has been improved and it is important because the better the rating the lower the interest rate to borrow money.

Re: “White Nationalist Crashes Press Conference on Racial Harassment of Kiah Morris

"Maybe the first amendment needs to be amended"
Unfortunately freedom of speech will expose people to expressions that are not nice or are hurtful. Trying to remove these things or prevent them from being heard does nothing to change the root cause of their utterances. Dealing with them, teaching and learning from them is much more beneficial than burying our heads in the sand.
I have been in situations where things were said that probably should not have been said, but the people had the right to say them. I spoke up and said I disagreed and would appreciate it if they kept those opinions to themselves. What they thought was their own, but I have my own ideas. There is no need to provoke etc.
