In the wake of Town Meeting Day, residents may think their exercise in democratic responsibility has been fulfilled. Not so. On the contrary, in almost every town there are important issues that require continued public conversation and engagement.
Certainly that’s the case with the communities whose school budgets were defeated.
The Addison County chiefs of police and the Addison County sheriff would like to recognize Middlebury Rep. Betty Nuovo for her comments in an article in the Feb. 19 edition of the Addison Independent. Rep. Nuovo voiced her opposition to House Bill 277 and Senate Bill 95, both which propose the legalization of marijuana for recreational usage.
I am writing to submit a clarification to the information presented in the article “Dog Gone Lucky,” that appeared in the Monday, March 2, edition of the Addison Independent.
I hope this Superintendent David Adams drama in Bristol is not déjà vu, but it is playing out much like the South Burlington Superintendent Gail Durckel’s $104,000 goodbye deal back in 2006.
I find it hard to believe that Dawn Griswold, chairman of both the Mount Abe and Monkton school boards, has no insight as to why those budgets were not passed. At Mount Abe’s annual meeting, the audience was seething with discontent for the lack of communication and transparency, and unwillingness of the superintendent’s office to share the burden of a leaner budget.
