Politically Thinking: Left may challenge Shumlin budget

Posted on January 6, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



Gov. Shumlin will submit his proposed budget for fiscal year 2012 to the Legislature at the end of January. Opposition to Shumlin’s budget may be more intense among progressives than among Republicans.

The Republicans are too weak to be a major force in Montpelier. They hold fewer than one-third of the seats in the House and the Senate. The senior Republican, Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, has made it clear that he does not see his role as leading the opposition to Shumlin.

Posted on January 6, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s right about this time of year that some of us begin to wonder why we ever thought it was a good idea to live in Vermont in the first place: Two weeks after Christmas and three more months of wintry weather to come.

Couldn’t God have just skipped January (and maybe November) and given us only the shocking green of spring, the lazy warmth of summer, and the gold of autumn?

Sure, we’ll take a few weeks of late winter thrown in there for good measure, complete with longer days and fresh maple syrup.

But as for January? A lot of us would just as soon hit the fast-forward button.

Posted on January 5, 2011 |
By Gov. James Douglas



 

Editor’s note: Gov. James Douglas bade farewell to the people of Vermont and to his colleagues in state government on Wednesday afternoon in a final address to the Legislature. The Middlebury Republican was due to complete eight years in the state’s top elective office on Thursday, when Gov.-elect Peter Shumlin was to be sworn in. Douglas, 59, was first elected to the Vermont House as a representative from Middlebury in 1972, and, except for two years, has served in the Legislature or in the executive branch ever since.

Posted on January 3, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

MIDDLEBURY — Local child care providers are concerned that parents will have a tougher time landing financial assistance under a new state plan that would see applications processed at a central call center in Waterbury rather than by officials in the county.

Posted on January 3, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — With the first official U.S. Census data out showing Vermont’s population grew just 2.8 percent in the past decade, estimates from 2009 indicate the next batch of information to be released within the next two months may show that Addison County’s growth may have been even slower.

The Census pegged Vermont’s population as of April 1 as 625,741, up from 608,827 in 2000, the last time a full national count was completed.
