Editor’s note: The following is an open letter to Middlebury College President Ron Liebowitz, faculty and students.
Concerning the solar industry and Public Service Board effect on Addison County, beginning with PSB 7645:
In response to the article “Residents wary of airport upgrades” in the Dec. 4 Independent, safety at the Middlebury Airport is the focus of ongoing and upcoming improvements.
Several years ago, I attended a public meeting hosted by J&M Aviation at Middlebury Airport, where the Vermont Agency of Transportation announced many long term plans to upgrade safety at many state airports, including Middlebury Airport. The meeting was attended by many local residents, pilots, and several state representatives.
It’s popular today to be critical of politicians in Washington, D.C., and in Montpelier. It’s popular to be against government spending and for tax cuts. It’s also popular to be against spending more on education — both at the state level and federal.
But what’s popular is not always smart.
What’s smart is to raise and spend money in ways that make our society stronger, enrich the individual and reduce the need for spending more on the back end.
MIDDLEBURY — After a pre-Thanksgiving storm brought heavy snowfall on the busiest travel day of the year, Addison County was again smacked by a two-day storm. This past Tuesday and Wednesday saw more than a foot of freezing rain and heavy snow fall on Vermont, knocking out power for thousands, impeding travel and prompting cancelation of schools for two or three days.
