Opinion: Lisman could be a great leader

Posted on August 1, 2016 |
By Robert Bernstein



Bruce Lisman’s candidacy in this year’s Republican primary for governor seems, to me, to be a rare chance for us as Vermonters to help ourselves.

I introduced myself to Lisman after hearing him speak at a candidate forum last October. I found his thoughtfulness and engagement to be head and shoulders above the others, all of whom spoke well, but the others showed ambition for the job, while Lisman demonstrated a passionate desire to help. This seemed to be the most notable difference to me.

Opinion: Dunne's strengths are numerous

Posted on August 1, 2016 |
By Jay Parini



We write in support of Matt Dunne for governor. In our view, he has exactly the talents and positions needed at this critical moment in Vermont’s history. For years now, he has been thinking hard about the environment, and he’s been front and center with ideas, acknowledging that “climate change will fundamentally harm our economy.” His detailed plans for energy efficiency, and the development of solar and heat pump technology, make him an obvious fit for a state that has been at the forefront of the environmental movement.

ADDISON — Imagine you’re on a boat. Fog swirls gently above the grey morning waters of Lake Champlain, and you’re drifting at ease on the glassy surface.

Then, in the distance, you see it — a dark, hulking figure undulating across the lake. Its body appears in small bumps above the surface as it travels.

Maybe it’s a sturgeon. The prehistoric species has had plenty of time to grow to a gargantuan size in the lake, which itself has been around for more than 10,000 years.
