Re: “Burlington Progressives Endorse Carina Driscoll for Mayor

You can't blame people for still being very upset about Burlington College, but the widespread public disdain for Carina Driscoll has more to do with how she took money from her parents to support herself long after she became an adult. There is nothing illegal about that but it shows a lack of character, a lack of willingness to work and earn her positions through merit. That her mother is part of bankrupting a beloved institution does not help her case.

People are angry because many politicians use their position to enrich themselves and their families. Carina Driscoll has already shown she is primed to take advantage of that cesspool of corruption in order to enrich herself and her family. Bernie Sanders is a great man who deserves better than Jane Sanders and Carina Driscoll besmirching his reputation. This unfortunate woman has done nothing substantive that merits voting for her for any public office.

Re: “Carina Driscoll, Bernie Sanders' Stepdaughter, Announces Run for Burlington Mayor

I have an idea how Carina Driscoll can more effectively help her community other than by running for political office!

She can teach a class about how we can get our mothers to use their positions to pay us half a million dollars for a self-created job. I bet there are lots of woodworkers and other artists in town who would love to know how to earn this kind of money from a parent.

Even a parent like Jane Sanders, who is a stain on Bernie's wonderful legacy. She represents everything that is wrong with politics and leadership, and I have no doubt her grasping daughter emulates her ethics. I hope the FBI investigation results in large fines and community service for what Jane Sanders did to that school and her insidious actions against our beautiful Burlington. Heaven help us if we let her daughter anywhere near our purse strings.

Re: “Researcher and Activist Bob Melamede Considers Marijuana a Miracle Drug

I don't know what this guy's problem is, but he seems to have one. I have personally experienced his unnecessarily obnoxious behavior. Every weed user I've ever known has been so mellow and kind and decent. If this guy is smoking weed, he's not smoking enough. I'm shocked to see how this article portrays him as some sort of lovable curmudgeon, to see him glorified in Seven Days is appalling. Luckily, I have a good supply of weed to help me cope.

Re: “City Councilor Quits Job to Vote on Burlington Telecom Sale

Such great news to know the dedication of our city councilors. I pray they'll vote for Ting so all Burlington taxpayers will be able to enjoy state of the art internet service. I'm so grateful to the mayor and council for bringing a huge mess to a wonderful conclusion. A vote for KBTL is a vote to kill BT and force taxpayers into funding huge lawsuits. It's not local if I have no choice but Comcast. BT needs to serve all of Burlington! KBTL won't and this taxpayer is tired of paying for internet I cannot have. Thank you to Karen Paul for choosing to put Burlington over her career!

Re: “Tapped Out: Burlington Residents Turned Off By Smelly Water

Good people at DPW, Burlington is lucky. I can't imagine city officials anywhere else I've lived coming to my home to investigate a potential problem.

Re: “City Council Postpones Vote On New Burlington Telecom Owner

I'm dismayed at the fiscal short sightedness of council members. Burlington does not own BT because of fiscal mismanagement. If any of these people were selling their own property to pay off a large debt, none of them would accept a bid that's ten million dollars under another offer. KBTL is not viable, they don't have funds to extend service to all of Burlington.

As much as we may want BT to remain local, nobody is willing to put their money up to make that happen. I'm not willing to throw away millions of dollars fighting creditors in legal battles that'll result in us losing all control of who buys BT. Ting is a good company with good people. The antiComcast. Please don't mire us in years of expensive legal bills, taxpayers have already paid enough.

Re: “City Reveals Burlington Telecom Bids, But Questions Remain

I was able to provide confirmed feedback using the BTFeedback email address, it's great that the city administration is taking the time to let the public weigh in. My major concern as a taxpayer is that I paid for Burlington Telecom but am unable to use it. I think it was a smart investment for Burlington, and I wish whoever buys it will extend access to everyone in Burlington.

Comcast is awful and has way too much of my money, they need a reality check and I'd love for more communities like Burlington to give it to them.
