Re: “Burlington City Councilors Trade Barbs Over Telecom Talks

Another point that has been brought out is Councilor Paul's rescusal and subsequent quitting of her job so she could vote without conflict (a questionable tactic for another topic of discussion). If she had not voted for Ting, KBTL would have been the choice! Perhaps the Mayor knew this outcome could happen and was behind her strategy in order to move along his preference...which wouldn't surprise me about our Mayor

Re: “Electric Vehicles Are All the Buzz in Vermont

While I agree electric vehicles are the future and look forward to more of them on the road. An issue that needs to be discussed is their contribution to road maintenance. Currently gas powered vehicles contribute to road infrastructure via gas tax, but EVs don't contribute anything (obviously). The Legislature needs to come up with a way for EV's to help pay for our roads...perhaps a mileage tax?

Re: “Burlington Teachers on Strike After Negotiations Fail

The requirement of living in the City of Burlington has merit but hasn't been followed for a long time. Jeanne Collins lived in Shelburne while she was Superintendent.

Re: “Construction to Begin After Sides Settle Burlington Town Center Legal Disputes

Thank you John Franco and the city residents who challenged this project and were able to get some concessions for the citizens of Burlington. More parking (there wasn't going to be any public parking) and no student housing is certainly a good thing. Miro's comments (spin) continue to show who he aligns with, the wealthy developers and giving away of city assets. BTC will be his and the City Council's legacy for good or bad.

Re: “Walters: Did the Governor Just Wave the White Flag?

I hope Gov. Scott isn't waiving the white flag and this becomes a blame game between the Democrats and the Governor with the taxpayers on the losing end....again. Stay strong Gov. Scott!

Re: “South Burlington School Board Won't Put 'Rebels' Question on Ballot

Change the name and move on like CVU and Rice have already done. In 5 years no one will care the Rebel name is gone.
