Re: “Why Are Burlington Residents Sending Tax Payments to New York?

The similar situation came to light when I asked the call taker for the Vermont Public Radio pledge drive where he was located and he said Nevada. I learned since that VPR contracts with a firm in Las Vegas to save money. I raised the issue at a VPR Board meeting and they brushed it off.

I explicitly questioned their responsibility to keep the jobs local, pay a living wage, explore the New England consortium concept at least. My resolve is to not pledge another penny to VPR until they answer the calls locally, and until they hire a Public Editor/Ombudsman akin to the NY Times to investigate inadequate news coverage and bias.

Several of those 'non-profit' folks are making well over $100k to support the VPR fundraising powerhouse. I only hope that their journalism can become as effective as the fundraising.
