BRISTOL — Voters in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union rejected two of the three school budgets up for consideration Tuesday. It is the latest chapter in a tumultuous spring for the district, which has also seen a citizens petition calling for the removal of the superintendent and a near-unanimous vote of no confidence in his leadership by the teachers’ union.

Residents rejected spending plans for Mount Abraham Union High School by a tally of 755 to 485, and Bristol Elementary School, 224 to 166.

Hundreds seek ouster of ANeSU superintendent

LincolnMeeting2346.jpg

LINCOLN — For 26 seconds, applause rocked the walls of Lincoln Community School’s tiny gymnasium Tuesday evening. The cause of the ovation was not, as one might suspect, a game-winning basket or conclusion of a musical performance.

Rather, a local resident asked her supervisory union board to fire the superintendent.

During visitors’ business of the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union board meeting, Koran Cousino of Starksboro presented a petition signed by hundreds of voters who support the dismissal of ANeSU Superintendent David Adams.

Bristol Elementary parents seek transparency on budget process

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — A group of Bristol Elementary School parents have expressed concern about local control of how their education tax dollars are spent, and are urging the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union to be more transparent.

“It seems that currently the budget is developed with a small handful of people with little opportunity for the public to weigh in,” said parent Kristin Siringo. “It’s not entirely clear how much the board is even involved in the process.”

Editorial: Middlebury's moment — take time to do projects well

Posted on May 15, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Good for Middlebury. Residents turned out in high numbers for a revote on a municipal bond that confirmed its earlier decision to go forward with the proposed $6.5 million project. That 1,600 people turned out for a revote in mid-May, just 119 fewer than the initial Town Meeting Day vote, is a credit to voter participation and community interest.

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Middlebury residents face a revote next Tuesday on its proposed $6.5 million municipal building/recreational center project, we tip our hats to the more civil nature of the debate this time around. Arguments have stuck to the core issue of the value of the buildings being proposed, their location and how well they will collectively serve the public.
