Opinion: State must fight natural gas plan

The nicest thing about a trip out of state is coming back to Vermont.
Recently there has been much advertising and sales of the idea that sacrificing the lives and property of Vermonters for cheap fuel from Canada (and not obeying Vermont law) is in the public good.
A current example of that concept is the building of an explosive gas storage and distribution network in Middlebury without the required-by-Vermont-law public hearing (30 V.S.A., Section 24B(4)(A)) and permit (Section 248(b)(5)).
The Addison County state’s attorney has the public service responsibility to enforce Vermont law in Addison County. “We the people” have authority to make sure that gets done in order to protect the lives and property of Vermonters.
Democracy works if we do. We are blessed to have such a special place to do that work, and by our heritage from those whose work has given us what we have.
Our work can give what it is to be a Vermonter as legacy to our children and grandchildren.
