Editorial: Of elections and 'the Dream'

Posted on November 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



A generation or so ago, the American Dream was writ large in our cultural DNA. Symbolically, the dream came to mean owning an adequate house, having a family, a car and a job to pay for it all. In the 1950s-60s-70s, that seemed to be possible for a majority of Americans. The mantra was that if you graduated high school, worked hard, and kept your nose clean you’d get to that dream in your thirties, start building equity and have enough to retire on Social Security by 65. That was the life.

Tomorrow is Election Day. In Vermont’s two-year election cycle, every office is up for grabs. As is typical, there will be several names on the ballot many voters will not be familiar with. That’s OK, don’t panic, and above all, don’t NOT vote.

If you’re feeling unprepared, here’s a quick guide before you step into the voting booth, along with some pointers from which to base your vote:

Editorial: Zuckerman for Lt. Governor

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



There are some things on which we feel Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman is too progressive, but those are by matter of degrees, not of policy.

He’s a strong advocate for measures that will make the lives of lower- and middle-class Vermonters stronger and healthier — a livable wage, health care for all, net neutrality, reducing the wage gap and affordable housing. He’s an organic farmer who understands the pressures facing farmers across the state and the need for smaller farms to diversify.

Editorial: Vote for a 'can-do' governor

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



If Vermonters want a governor who will work collaboratively with the Legislature to develop effective legislation, rather than rule by veto, they won’t get it from Gov. Phil Scott.

If Vermonters want a governor to champion a livable wage or clean up the state’s waters, they won’t get that from Phil, either.

And if Vermonters want a governor who will lead the state against climate change and implement universal broadband, Phil’s not their man.
