Here’s a question for the Republican Party faithful who have yet to reject presidential candidate Donald Trump: How far would you go?
If you knew his intention was to suspend our democratic system and our rule of law, arm the police and military to restore “law and order” — at least until we got all the “bad hombres” out of the country, and the Islamic terrorists and the drug lords and “all the many, many bad people” he keeps talking about — would you still cast your vote for him?
The board of the newly unified Addison Northwest School District (ANWSD) has started the process of negotiating a contract with the Addison Northwest Teachers’ Association (ANTA) for the 2017-18 contract year. Although negotiations have historically been held behind closed doors, the ANWSD Board believes that the public interest is best served through transparency. Therefore, the board has decided to hold these negotiation meetings in an open public forum.
This week’s writer is Morrisville resident Shap Smith, speaker of the Vermont House of Representatives.
Some on the campaign trail suggest that the Vermont Legislature has engaged in deficit spending over the last 14 years. That is simply not true.
Harvey Smith is the best person to continue to represent District 5 (New Haven, Weybridge, Bridport). He is an experienced legislator. Harvey knows our rural community. He is a retired dairy farmer who has transitioned to participating in the local food network.
He has represented New Haven at the Addison County Regional Planning Commission for over 25 years. He has been Chair and also the ACRPC delegate to Addison County Economic Development. Harvey has always been available to assist the Bridport selectboard with legislative issues.
I am writing in support of Claire Ayer for State Senate. Sen. Ayer has been an effective leader for Addison County for many years. She is responsive to the needs of residents of Addison County and brings much needed leadership an expertise in the Senate.
When I think of Monique Thurston words like caring, determined, passionate, energetic and articulate come to mind. Monique understands how over-spending, over-regulation, job losses and increased taxation have created an affordability crisis for many Vermonters.
Favorite groping story: Man gropes woman in a crowded subway car. Woman grabs man’s hand, holds it high in the air, and announces, “Why is this man’s hand on my tush?”
I don’t remember who this woman was, and lord knows, Donald Trump doesn’t ride the subway. Still, I picture our faces as she holds his hand in the air and asks all of us bystanders in the train, “Why is this man’s hand on my tush?” And is he worthy of your vote for president?
