Eric Davis: Pols wrong to ask Ginsburg to retire

Posted on May 29, 2014 |
By Eric L. Davis



As the U.S. Supreme Court comes closer to the end of its term in late June, some Democratic elected officials and progressive law professors are calling on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to announce her retirement when the term concludes. Their argument is that Ginsburg, the Court’s oldest member at 81 and the leader of the Court’s liberal wing, should retire in time to allow President Obama to nominate her successor while the Democrats still hold a majority in the Senate.

Editorial: Wage hike deserves Senate approval

Posted on March 31, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Gov. Shumlin’s call for an increase in the minimum wage hike to $10.10 an hour by 2017 is not only the right thing to do, it also makes economic sense.

No reasonable person can argue that a lower wage is good for business or the nation’s economy. The economic goal of the nation should be to create and nurture a vibrant and thriving middle class, which includes those at the lower end of the wage scale who see the merits of hard work yield a lifestyle that, at the very least, can put food on the table and shelter overhead.

Editorial: Solar power/town aesthetics? It's not an either-or proposition

Posted on March 24, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Vermont Senate killed a bill on the floor last week, 21-8, that would have provided towns some control over how solar power projects were sited. Among other things, the bill, S.191, sought to require ground-mounted solar installations to comply with the same town zoning and screening requirements as does other commercial development.

Leahy2568.jpg

Editor’s note: Democrat Patrick Leahy, now 73, was the state’s attorney for Chittenden County when he was elected to represent Vermont in the U.S. Senate in 1974. Now the longest-serving active senator, he has the perspective, the connections and the power to accomplish a lot for his state and his country. Our reporter spent a day with Sen. Leahy last week, watching the veteran politician hard at work in the nation’s capital.

Leahy2588.jpg

WASHINGTON — A masterful storyteller, Sen. Patrick Leahy shared anecdotes about senators of decades past during a recent visit with a reporter. One was a conversation with Minnesota Sen. Hubert Humphrey that took place shortly after Leahy took office in 1975. Humphrey asked Leahy if he wanted to go on a Congressional trip to Moscow to meet with Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev.

By Angelo Lynn



Big story still to come tonight, at midnight, is the projection for Senate gains for Democrats... and for women. 

As it now stands at 12:11 a.m, Nov. 7, the Democrats have won 50 Senate seats, plus two Independents — Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders in Vermont, who votes solidly with the Democrats, and Angus King, Maine, who will be a true independent, leaning Democratic on social issues. But there are still four Senate seats in the running, and three of them are leading Democratic.

Sen. Giard won't seek another term

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By John Flowers



BRIDPORT — Sen. Harold Giard, D-Bridport, who has represented Addison County and Brandon in the state senate for the past eight years, will not seek a fifth consecutive term in the state’s highest chamber this November.

Giard confirmed this news during an interview with the Addison Independent late Wednesday afternoon. He said his decision was made out of respect for Vermont’s citizen Legislature and out of a desire to allow someone else to serve in a role he has found so fulfilling during the past eight years.

Huntington joins county election scene

Posted on May 24, 2012 |
By John Flowers



HUNTINGTON — For the first time in decades, candidates competing for Addison County’s two state Senate seats will be straying north, rather than south, to pick up extra votes.

That’s because, barring a court challenge, Huntington and Buel’s Gore will soon join Addison County’s senatorial district in place of Brandon, which will return to Rutland County’s voting district. The Vermont Legislature and Gov. Peter Shumlin recently approved these changes as part of the decennial reapportionment process.
