Opinion: Ayer is trustworthy and a hard worker

Posted on October 10, 2016 |
By Mike Fisher



Sen. Ayer has my vote. I have worked closely with Claire in our community and in the world of state politics. She is a great listener with great values and a very hard worker for us. But the most important thing to say about Claire is that I trust her. I trust that she will work hard to make our great state even better.

Eric Davis: Bernie Sanders has sway with young voters

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Eric Davis



Last week, Bernie Sanders appeared at a rally along with Hillary Clinton on the campus of the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The event drew a large and enthusiastic crowd.

Sanders vigorously endorsed Clinton to the students and other young people present. He supports her both because of specific issues in her platform, such as her plans for lowering college tuition and student loans, and because he firmly believes that a Donald Trump presidency would be dangerous and destabilizing for the nation.

Gregory Dennis: Dems still shortchanging the Progs

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Gregory Dennis



Does the Vermont Democratic Party still hate the Vermont Progressive Party?

It appears so, judging by the way it’s holding a stale grudge against candidates who call themselves progressive and run for office as both Democrats and Progressives.

Dave Zuckerman, a Hinesburg organic farmer, ran for lieutenant governor this year as both a D and a P. But the state Democratic apparatus has consistently — even now — withheld its proprietary voter information from his campaign.

Nuovo on Spinoza: Freedom and determination

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the eighth in a series of essays on Dutch philosopher Benedict Spinoza.

The last essay left us at the threshold of Spinoza’s morality and politics, but before we cross it, there are other matters to consider, background to be filled in, loose ends to be tidied up, and knots untied one of which demand our urgent attention. His system seems to be founded on an inconsistency. Freedom and determinism, which on the face of it are incompatible, are joined together in it.

Opinion: Bruhl would bring optimism

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Erin Ruble



Taborri Bruhl is running for Vermont House for the district of New Haven, Bridport and Weybridge. I’ve had the chance to hear him speak on a couple of occasions now, and I’ve been impressed with his background, his thoughtfulness, and most of all, his optimism that we can actually do something about the problems that surround us.

Opinion: Ayer helped businessman cut through red tape

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Carl Roesch



Sen. Claire Ayer has been an invaluable help to me as an owner of a restaurant in Middlebury. Due to my status as a permanent legal resident, I was unable to apply for a liquor license in the state of Vermont because of a bill that had been in place since prohibition, which only allows U.S. citizens to hold liquor licenses.

Sen. Ayer had caught wind of my plight and immediately began working on having the bill changed to allow permanent residents like myself the opportunity to apply for liquor licenses in order to grow their businesses.

Opinion: ANeSU governance plan would reduce local control

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Alice Leeds



I will vote no on the ANESU ACT 46 Proposal on Nov. 8. Here’s why: Tax savings will be minimal and short-term, and they will be offset by an increase in our statewide education tax. Direct community input will be reduced when a single 13-member board is responsible for all six ANESU schools. It will be far more difficult for this large single board to closely consider the needs of each individual school.
