YMCA Sends Email to Reassure Members 

I belong to the YMCA — I work out (infrequently!) at the Y in Winooski. Late last night, I got an email from YMCA President/CEO Mary Burns, assuring me that the Y takes complaints of inappropriate behavior "very seriously". I can only assume the message is responding to the charges leveled against Senator Ed Flanagan, which Shay Totten reported in this week's "Fair Game."

This issue is receiving a fair amount of media attention — it made the front page of the Burlington Free Press this morning. And there are two threads dissecting it over at Green Mountain Daily, here and here.

Read the full text of the YMCA email below.
