Clippings: Campaign spending obscenely high

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By John S. McCright



Who could blame the electorate for thinking the people running to represent them in government are stinking, money-grubbing pigs? Election after election the amount of money candidates spend in their campaigns grows and grows, at a rate surely much faster than inflation.

According to the Vermont Secretary of State’s website, Republican Horace F. Graham spent the whopping sum of $28.15 to fend off a Democrat, a Progressive and a Prohibition Party candidate to win the Vermont governor’s race in 1916. Things have changed.

Candidates on the Issues: Greg Clark, Addison-3

STATE BUDGET: If the Legislative majority chooses to override the governor’s veto of a balanced budget, as they did in 2009, or increase spending by $120 million, as was the case this year, then the solution to Vermont’s budget crisis is an easy one — continue to increase spending, raise more taxes and deficit spend. We can continue the status quo or do what Vermonters expect us do: Work together and do what’s good for all Vermonters.

McKillop: Best ever? Could be

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



“Watch this quarterback for us. He may be the best ever,” I instructed Jay Shapiro, class of 1977 at Middlebury (father of Melissa ’13), at the Middlebury-Amherst College football game on Parents’ Weekend this fall.
Skeptical, he asked, “Better than Peter Mackey?”
The next week, Jeff Mackay ’65 came through and I said the same thing to him. He replied, “Better than Charlie Brush?” acknowledging the best of his era.
Is Don McKillop, the Panther quarterback for the past four years, the best ever to play this position in over a century of football at the college?

ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County residents will have ample reason to vote in the mid-term elections on Tuesday, Nov. 2, as the local slate features four House races and four candidates vying for two state Senate seats.

Amendment would allow some 17-year-olds to vote

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — A majority of Vermont lawmakers and Secretary of State Deb Markowitz find themselves at odds with many town clerks on the subject of a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would allow 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections.

The amendment — also known as Proposition 5 — would allow 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections, provided they turn 18 before the ensuing general election. The question will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot and has already been approved by two successive sessions of the Vermont General Assembly.

CORNWALL — Christine Hadsel and Suki Fredericks picked up what looked like a ratty, rolled-up drop-cloth and placed it on an expansive table in the Cornwall town office conference room late last week.

But as they gently unfurled the fabric, it became clear that this was not a piece of throwaway fabric.

Each turn of the roll revealed more real estate of a beautifully painted, late-summer lake scene, replete with lush trees surrounding an azure waterway with rolling hills in the background.

Training a key for green economy

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — The message was clear at the Vermont Environmental Consortium’s annual expo at Middlebury College: More green training is necessary for Vermont to have a truly green economy.

“Vermont definitely has the opportunity to keep more jobs and more money in the state,” said Melissa Levy, of St. Albans-based Yellowwood Associates.
