Re: “Burlington Political Parties Weigh In on North Avenue Debate

With regard to the angry, accusatory tone of marianne1's various postings here and on Front Porch Forum, I can only offer one final comment:

I rest my case.

Re: “Burlington Political Parties Weigh In on North Avenue Debate

Unfortunately, longtime Republican activist and former State Rep. candidate Scot Shumski's filing of a completely unfounded complaint with the Attorney General's Office is typical of the petty, petulant, and divisive tone on the North Avenue issue that has flowed from several of the leaders of the anti-pilot petition drive, some of whom are directly linked to the Burlington Republican Party. It's unfortunate that the North Avenue dialog has become so blatantly partisan, but the blame for that - despite Tony Bell's disingenuous remarks - rests solely on the Burlington GOP and especially on Republican leaders - elected and otherwise - in the New North End, who have politicized this issue for more than a year, dating back to last year's City Council races in Wards 4 and 7.

Re: “Man of the People Faces Woman of the Party in Burlington City Council Race

This is a solid, balanced, and well-written article by Alicia on the Burlington City Council race between my Democratic friends Dave Hartnett and Carmen George in the new North District. I'm looking forward to a respectful, forthright, and well-informed discussion of the ISSUES in my own City Council race against Michael Ly in Ward 7, as well as in the Jim Holway-Kurt Wright contest in Ward 4, and the Hartnett-George race in the North District.
