Clean up Church Street? Take a bite out of crime?
Hats off to ex-deputy state prosecutor Ben Luna for being idealistic enough to think that Burlington's power elite would have such a concern.
Murders? Where? Stabbings? Keep on moving, nothing to see here.
The truth is, Mayor Mirror (sic) Whineburger (sic) has a bigger priority - coming up with a design for a new city flag.
Can't make it up.
Meanwhile, clear thinkers such as Luna recommend a police station at the corner of Church and Cherry.
Not a bad idea, but in reality just a way to spend more money on a meaningless project. Unless cops are given the OK to, sorry, arrest thugs, all the police substations will make little difference.
Great idea in theory, but as Luna has figured out, Whineberger and his safe-space fellow city councilors are more concerned with finding the Church/Bank street vagrants a place to harass the public, lest they - the so-called city officials - come off as anti-welfare.
The mayor is so enamored of my ideas he has blocked me from his Twitter account. A little sensitive to the truth, mayor?
If you want to understand why the mayor would spend $2.5 million of your hard-earned tax money to paint some bike lanes, you need to understand what his ilk - and the city councilors - do to retain their cushy jobs.
It's called keeping the liberal welfare class satiated.
Elections in Burlington are about keeping the city the way Bernie Sanders left it - in a mess.
The way these clowns keep their offices is by following the Willie-Sutton method: Go where the votes are.
And where is that? In the liberal enclaves of Burlington.
The height is a diversion to the real issue - spending $22 million in taxpayer money to reopen streets that were closed once with millions in, yup, taxpayer money.
The insanity never stops.
Don't be fooled by the height - it's an ancillary issue designed to keep your eyes off the real scandal - $22 million in good tax money after bad.
"Weinberger said Thursday that he wishes he’d known about del Pozo’s racial profiling paper, but that he’s unshaken in his support for the 40-year-old Brooklyn native."
But the story never splains why the mayor wishes he'd known. Why does he wish he had known? What difference would it have made? Any? Why or why not?
Weinberger has a tin political ear and always has. He's vulnerable because his supporters - the leftists - are always a whisker away from cashing him in for someone else who can give them a placarding cause to while away their idle time.
Since when is a threatened candidacy news?
When he submits enough sigs to be ballotized.
He sounds about as serious as I am running for mayor.

Seven Days should credit blogger Ted Cohen with breaking this story - 18 days before SD got to it.
BURLINGTON GUITAR MAKER STOPS THE MUSIC; LISTS $839,000 'HAUNTED' MANSION FOR SALE
The embattled owner of a South Prospect Street mansion who has been a target of a neighbor's complaints about industrial noise has thrown in the towel.
The house at 292 South Prospect was listed today for $839,000 by broker Chris Von Trapp of the famous singing family.
The house has been owned since 2012 by Adam Buchwald, who drew the ire of neighbor Barbara Headrick for the alleged noise coming from his guitar-making shop's industrial saws and planers.
Headrick has liveed at 282 South Prospect Street since 2004. She has filed myriad complaints with City Hall, claiming Buchwald is ruining a residential neighborhood with his noisy business.
