Mullins, Valerie.jpg

MONKTON — What a difference two years can make in politics.

In 2012, incumbent Reps. David Sharpe, D-Bristol, and Michael Fisher, D-Lincoln, were unopposed in their successful runs for new two-year terms representing the Addison-4 House district.

ADDISON COUNTY — If Vermont Gas Systems does move forward with eminent domain proceedings against Addison County landowners to secure necessary easements to build its proposed natural gas pipeline, it will have both state statute and recent precedents on its side.

The Canadian-owned utility sent letters to nine Monkton homes last month stating that if an agreement on a right-of-way easement could not be reached, the utility would have no choice but to begin the process of eminent domain.

MONKTON — “Do you want to jump higher?” Karen Amirault shouts to the gymnasium full of Monkton Central School third- and fourth-graders.
