Re: “Burton Plans Entertainment Hub at Its Burlington Campus

Note the hurtful Champlain Parkway, a vestige of the 1960s car centric times, remains challenged with the Pine Street Coalition fighting for a new design process that will add not subtract from safety, reduce not increase climate change emissions, reduce not increase injuries, provide for the first time separate and safe walk and bike facilities (current design subtracts sidewalks on Pine Street), and saves acres of land for economic development, linear park space and protection of stressed Englesby Brook.

Re: “Uprooted: Burlington Farmers Market Seeks a New Home

If we join together here in Burlington the proposed big metro design will be defeated at the polls in March in a ballot item, and the farmers' market allowed to continue (with some changes to reflect sensitivity to the Park ecology) while a more sensible "preservation" approach design (likely less expensive!) is developed. That plan needs to incorporate a workable long term farmers' market, perhaps with emphasis on farmers! Tony Redington Burlington

Re: “Union Members Dispute Claim of 'Unanimous' Driscoll Endorsement

This really is a non-story. It is routine for union leadership and committees to look over the record of candidates, often with an interview, and make an endorsement. Unions follow representative governance and trustees or leadership undertake the serious business of political endorsements. I did so as a representative of about 1,000 Montpelier State employees Montpelier chapter. Union leadership does not determine how their members will vote but are tasked with selecting candidates best aligned with the union values and interest.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

Wonder what his view on ceding back American lands taken by force from Indian nations. All of us except for native Americans are immigrants and foreigners. Tony Redington Burlington

Re: “Sinex to Proceed With BTC Mall Redevelopment After Stay Denied

One of the recent mis-statements by the Mayor and Sinex says the Planning Commission approved the Sinex project--it not only did not review the project but stated clearly in open session it was not judging one way or the other the zoning change, merely handing back to the Council the question. The important aspect here is that now many these issues will be argued as facts not as opinions. And all can eventually be appealed and decided by higher courts. Tony Redington Burlington

Re: “Sinex to Proceed With BTC Mall Redevelopment After Stay Denied

It is ironic that perhaps the most important aspect of the Sinex/Weinberger/City Council design--the valet parking and loss of 500+ parking spaces for the Marketplace-- gets tossed aside at this point in court as it would if ever completed damage the very essence of what Burlington has stood up for decades: insuring the economic viability and strengthening small businesses along the Marketplace.
