Few races loom in ACSU communities

Posted on January 29, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Local elections will rank low on the list of reasons to draw Middlebury-area residents to their respective town meetings this March.

Candidates for local school and municipal offices had until Monday to file their petitions with their town clerks. A survey of the seven towns that make up the Addison Central Supervisory Union show there will only be a handful of contested elections when Middlebury-area residents head to the polls on Town Meeting Day, March 3.

Contests set for Vergennes city council, VUES board seats

Posted on January 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Town Meeting Day ballot will offer two contested races, including a rematch of a 2012 contest decided by one vote, and a petitioned article.

It will not include Senior Alderman Randy Ouellette, who did not file a petition by Monday’s deadline and will step down after a decade.

One of the races is the second go-around between Susan Ferland and Cheryl Brinkman for the seat on the Vergennes Union Elementary School board now held by Ferland. Both are seeking a three-year term.

Opinion: Voters' wishes were ignored

Posted on January 14, 2015 |
By Rustan Swenson



In this last election cycle a precious few enlightened Citizens beheld the voice of one crying in the wilderness, a lone echo, and they cast their votes in the hope of a rebirth, a renaissance, a new beginning. I was humbled and profoundly grateful for these heroic voters from across Vermont from Shelburne to Shoreham, to Orwell, Whiting and Middlebury.

MIDDLEBURY — There was a distinct Addison County flavor to Gov. Peter Shumlin’s Jan. 8 inaugural address, during which he emphasized renewable energy initiatives, agriculture and renewed efforts to clean up Lake Champlain.

Editorial: Criticism — a reflection on us

Posted on January 12, 2015 |

The commentary in the aftermath of Gov. Peter Shumlin’s third inaugural speech this past Thursday is at once fascinating, nonsensical and maddening — but also enlightening as a mirror of our political culture.

Top stories of 2014: #7 — New faces, angry voters mark Election 2014

Posted on January 5, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



FPNov6.jpg

The General Election of 2014 saw one local veteran lawmaker go down to defeat, and Addison County voters also added to some tense moments for incumbent Gov. Peter Shumlin as the ballots were counted on Nov. 4.

Bristol Republican Fred Baser had failed in 2010 to break through in his bid for one of the two seats representing Addison-4, the House district that includes the towns of Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton and Starksboro. But he made up for it in a big way this past November, finishing as the top vote-getter in a four-way race for the pair of seats.

Opinion: Milne deserves to be elected

Dear Legislators,

Consider the possibility that Mr. Shumlin should have had some knowledge prior to his announcement that the single-payer program would be too expensive. After all, he was two years in arrears in reporting to you, the Vermont legislator.

Opinion: Gov. Shumlin has done much for Vermont

Posted on December 19, 2014 |
By Willian Northrop



Now that the 2014 election cycle has come and gone, I’d like to cut through some of the political noise and take a moment to applaud and thank our governor, Peter Shumlin, for the great work he has done for Vermont as our governor. Recently, there has been a lot of attention given to issues that are going to be taken up in the Legislature, and some opinions expressed in local media that have cast negativity and doubt on Gov. Shumlin.

Guest editorial: 45-cent gas tax? That's nuts

Posted on November 24, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



If several Vermont environmental groups and key policy makers have their way, the Legislature will impose a tax on gasoline and heating fuels, raising the price of a gallon of gas an estimated 45 cents. This will be Vermont’s way to help cut greenhouse gas emissions.

They are delusional.
