Re: “Vermont Senate Panel Passes New Hotel Room Fee

I have gladly paid such a fee in the past when traveling, most recently in St. Lucia, where the charge was about $2.50 US per day. With our hotel bill we were presented with a letter from the prime minister thanking us for visiting and explaining that the fee is used for community development and low-income housing. Frankly I felt glad knowing that our visit helped in that effort even in a very small way, and it actually increases the likelihood that I will return there if I have another opportunity. I think presenting a similar letter to Vermont hotel guests upon check-in or check-out would be well-received.

Re: “The Story Behind Lavish Chinese Dance Extravaganza Shen Yun

Thanks for this great, in-depth piece, Ken. This answers many questions I've had about this group and performance -- especially the in-your-face, over-the-top and EVERYWHERE marketing. I am so sick of seeing these ads everywhere I turn!

Re: “Panel Recommends $31 Million in Taxes, Fees for Clean Water Efforts

I will happily pay this to help clean up our lake. However, I'd prefer no increase in registration fee and instead advocate a $2 or more fee per night in hotels, half to go to affordable housing and the other half for the lake. We spent a week in the Caribbean (St Lucia) in December and gladly paid a $5+ fee per night to support community development on the island. It just seemed SO RIGHT to ask tourists to do that.

Re: “Signing Off: Reflections of a Vermont Political Columnist

Another great column, Paul. You've been terrific in that role. Good luck in your new sphere -- plenty to cover in the priority areas you cite.
