Letter to the editor: Bixby Library changes aren't universally applauded

Posted on June 25, 2018 |
By Marcia Merryman-Means



The recent article on the changes at Bixby Library in Vergennes does not tell the whole story. The article quotes only Jane Spencer and Ed Place in self-congratulatory remarks about these changes.

VERGENNES — The table appears set for 3 Squares Café owner-operator Matt Birong of Vergennes to join the Vermont Legislature.

Barring a write-in campaign or a minor party candidate entering the race later this summer, Birong and incumbent Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, will run unopposed on Nov. 6 for Addison-3’s two Vermont House seats representing Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes and Waltham.

It would be the first time ever that two Democrats held both seats in what has traditionally been a Republican stronghold.
