Opinion: Milne has right vision for state

Posted on September 3, 2014 |
By Manchester Center



As a young adult living in Vermont, I feel so privileged to reside in a state filled with natural beauty, rich history, and kind-hearted people. However, like many young Vermonters, I’m at a crossroads over where I plan to live as I approach the next stage in my life. The direction of our state government is an important factor in my decision, as it is for many other young Vermont residents. I want to live in a state with economic security, employment opportunities and a quality education system.

Opinion: Legislators right to raise concern about pipeline

Posted on September 3, 2014 |
By Judy Kowalczyk



Just a quick note, somewhat delayed, to thank Sens. Ayer and Bray and Rep. Jewett for their comments to Gov. Shumlin on the proposed Phase 2 pipeline (also found in the “Community Forum” section of the Addison Independent on Thursday, Aug. 7). It is so appreciated when our elected officials actually represent the citizens. Your actions do not go unrecognized.

Thanks again.

Posted on September 3, 2014 |
By Eric L. Davis



Turnout in last week’s primary election was a near-record low, with only about 8 percent of Vermont’s registered voters casting ballots. The few places with reasonably high turnout were districts such as Middlebury, with contested primaries for open legislative seats.

Statewide, the turnout of Democratic voters was particularly low. Normally, more than 70 percent of primary voters choose the Democratic ballot. This year, fewer than 60 percent of the votes were cast in the Democratic primary.

Opinion: Shumlin's pipeline logic is flawed

Posted on September 3, 2014 |
By Brennan Michaels



Editor’s note: This was submitted as an open letter to Gov. Peter Shumlin.

It has become clear that the gas that will flow through the newly proposed Gaz Métro-Vermont Gas pipeline into Addison County will have an amount of fracked gas in it that is unknowable. In fact, Vermont Gas has no control and will have no way of even knowing how much of this gas is from fracked wells.
