Editorial: Two candidates exemplary in Middlebury board race

Posted on February 27, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When choosing a candidate for the three available seats open on the Middlebury Board of Selectmen, voters might ponder what individual qualities are most effective in that role: In our mind, strong leadership skills, a rational approach to problem-solving, and working well as a team are three of the more important strengths a candidate must have to be effective.

Editorial: An opportunity waiting

Posted on February 27, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Page 1 story on about the Russ Sholes Senior Center presents opportunities to better serve that segment of Middlebury’s population in the years ahead.

The shocking news is the diminished active members of the group. At its current weekly luncheons only a dozen or so seniors routinely attend, with a larger group showing up monthly for a lunch that also features entertainment.

Opinion: Middlebury selectboard has set an unfortunate tone

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Barbara Shapiro



An open letter to the Middlebury Selectboard:

When you treat voters as participants to be consulted rather than obstacles to be managed, you foster a very different process from the one you created for the municipal site proposal. An open discussion that welcomes all views lends itself to respectful exchange of ideas and fruitful collaboration, even when opinions are strong and differ.

Opinion: Voters shouldn't buckle to high-pressure sales pitch

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Michael Olinick



We have all recently been hit with an all-out attack by the combined forces of Middlebury College President Ron Liebowitz, Angelo Lynn, and the majority of the town selectboard. They are pressuring voters to support an expensive bond proposal, hatched in secret, that would sell off the prominent site of our municipal facilities, demolish these historic structures, and create two inadequate buildings in bad locations.

Opinion: Addition of women to Middlebury selectboard backed

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Ruth Hardy



Through my work over the past year as a public official in Middlebury, it has become abundantly clear to me that many in people in power in our town are unwilling to respect or include the voices of women in their work. Our selectboard has rarely included more than one woman among its ranks, and many times that lone woman has been shut out of deliberations. Women in leadership positions in Middlebury are often treated with disdain or simply ignored.

By Paul Ralston



I will vote YES to support the selectboard plan and bond request for a new town hall and gym. My YES vote is my “Thank You” to our elected and appointed officials for their thoughtful and prudent deliberations. My YES vote is my “Thank You” to Middlebury College for another generous offer of financial support to our town.

Opinion: Brandon must learn its lesson on budget planning

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Phyllis Reed



I recently attended the candidates’ forum in Brandon and found the word “transparency” used repeatedly. I held the question back that I wanted to ask to find out if the candidates truthfully thought the proposed budget was, in fact, “transparent.” The reason I held back was because three of the four candidates are incumbents. Of course they would think it is; they approved it.
