Re: “Dealer.com Changes Put Dozens of People's Jobs in Jeopardy

What tax incentives and other incentives did http://Dealer.Com receive to locate in Burlington? VEPC kicked in $6 million, what other incentives were used? VEPC needs to be investigated.

Re: “Opponents to Appeal Burlington Telecom Sale Decision

Can't hang the Schurz deal on Progressive councilors. Check the vote, please. Hartnett brokered the deal, when he was an Independent who used to be a Dem and was a Dem again after the sale. Knodell was a Progressive who is now running as an Independent. You have to look at how each councilor voted.

Re: “CityPlace Partner Assures Council That Project Will Move Forward

Brookfield Asset Management is in the news.

Brookfield Asset Management, the company that stood to benefit the most from this sale of sensitive and regulated US nuclear technology, to Saudi Arabia, took out a 99 year lease on the Kushner building on 5th Avenue in which no one wanted to rent office space." https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/02/qa…

Re: “Legislators: National Guard Reports on Sexism, Assaults Are Lacking

Stopped reading here: Cray, adjutant general of the state's 3,500-strong Air and Army National Guard units,

Strong? This editorial description is biased. On the contrary, the Guard is having a hard time meeting it's recruitment quotas, alcohol abuse and sexual harassnent weaken the fabric of integrity and readiness, data has been manipulated to secure an F35 mission, and ghost members are kept on the roster to hide inadequacy and fleece taxpayers.

Now, how about some neutral reporting.

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

@know your assumptions

Know your facts. Pick up a City Annual Report. Look at the debt that has ballooned under the current administration. Kiss, to a fault perhaps, refused to pile debt on taxpayers. I can't post a photo here, or I would show you the facts. You will have to check it yourself.
