Re: “Campaign Cash Issue Roils Probate Judge Race in Chittenden County

Seven Days has put another bunch of white men on its cover because, really, it can't help itself. This racism prevails into its reporting. Exhibit A:

Jickling (most likely a friend of York) says (above) with a set of unique reporting skills:
Delaney, who was trained as a mason, contended that he's the right man for the job because of his work advocating for Abenaki rights on the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs.

What's actually true:

Delaney says:
My role as assistant judge started in 2010. I am also the former state chair of the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs and helped to negotiate the criteria for state tribal recognition and other bills that are law today. Knowing how government works is essential. This knowledge was especially critical when state judiciary restructuring sought to eliminate county government in 2010. However, the fundamentals of checks and balances prevailed.Weve administered county taxes close to .5 percent for the last eight years. Currently, all counties lose fees and ability to commission notaries. Chittenden County has offset this lack of income by lease of vehicle spaces after-hours.

We have introduced a programmed business called Working Fields, which provides counseling and employment to those recovering from addictions. Working Fields has provided support for many in our communities including felons in recovery. We also support the use of mediation services which allows people more control over outcomes. Assistant judges are nationally certified in Chittenden County. What we do is essential for the citizens we serve.


Seven Days/Jickling Synopsis Review: Get your facts straight, check your racism, check your numbers (really) and develop and train your staff properly.
