Re: “A Never-Ending Home Construction Project Vexes a Queen City Hood

Maybe Hanitat for Humanity could negotiate a settlement, or one of the educational programs that teach building skills, like http://www.vtworksforwomen.org/about/emplo…

There's also a group of people in the construction trades that volunteer for community projects. With housing at such a premium in Burlington, this is a win-win opportunity.

Re: “Race On: A New American Aims to Diversify the Burlington City Council

Diversity on City Council is a worthy goal, and Ali Dieng is a worthy candidate.

One person can't represent all residents -- councilor Hartnett doesn't represent everyone. It's good to have balanced representation. Dieng represents many residents as reflected by his landslide win in the Ward 7 primary caucus, and diversity on City Council is long overdue.

As noted, Dieng's commitment to families and the integrated community, inspired by his life experiences and fueled by high energy and eagerness to learn, makes Dieng the best candidate. The fact that he doesn't follow old style party politics is his strength. There's an authenticity about him that is refreshing.

Very short on information. What exactly did the winner pitch? How is this going to make the world a better place?

Re: “Secure Lockers for the Homeless Proposed in Burlington

There's a lot of empty space in the mall. Space for overnight too.

Re: “Edward Snowden Takes Center Stage at Middlebury College

If media and students were prohibited from photographing or recording any part of the conversation, then who took these photos?
