Editorial: Scott takes the GOP field

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



If we were judging candidates for governor based solely on their policy positions, former Wall Streeter Bruce Lisman would best his opponent Lt. Gov. Phil Scott. If we were judging these same two candidates based on their accomplishments and business acumen, Lisman’s credentials again rise to the top.

Guest editorial: Minter's call for gun control seperates her from the pack

Posted on July 27, 2016 |
By Emerson Lynn



It’s a fool’s errand to speculate as to which of the three Democratic gubernatorial candidates is the preferred choice of Vermonters. Little polling has been done and the turnout for the Aug. 9 primary is expected to be relatively low. No one’s insight is any keener than anyone else’s; most of the campaigns are depending on solid field organizations to get their supporters to the polls.

Guest editorial: How far are we from being Archie Bunkers? Not far.

Posted on July 25, 2016 |
By Emerson Lynn



Whatever one person is capable of doing, any other person is capable of doing the same thing. That is the underbelly philosophy of Norman Lear, one of television’s all time great creators; the one who brought Archie Bunker to life in “All in the Family,” along with “The Jeffersons,” “One Day at a Time,” “Maude” and “Sanford and Son,” to name a few.

Guest editorial: Some lies worse than others

Posted on July 21, 2016 |
By Barrie Dunsmore



Let me be clear at the outset. It bothers me a great deal when I am lied to, by anyone. It upsets me even more, when our political leaders lie to the American people. Last week, James B. Comey, the head of the FBI told us that in her public remarks about her private email server, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made assertions that are not true. Evidently, she did send and receive emails on her private server that had been marked classified.

Guest Editorial: Let's keep Vermonters here!

Posted on July 18, 2016 |
By Lisa Ventriss



In a recent commentary about people leaving Vermont, at the conclusion of the author’s piece, he casually stated that “Vermont, like every other state, has its economic problems and some things to worry about. Rich folks moving to Florida is not one of them.”

I’d like to offer another perspective: Rich folks moving to Florida is a big problem that we should worry about.

Guest Editorial: Affordable housing is a tough nut to crack but proposed bill offered a pilot project

Posted on July 14, 2016 |
By Rep. Fred Baser



The availability of good housing for middle income Vermonters, near their place of work, is a problem in Vermont. Contractors struggle to build affordable homes for this market.

Editorial: Do we have the will to alter nation's deadly gun culture

 Last week was tough on America. In the footsteps of the country’s celebratory summer holiday, the nation was faced — once again — with unthinkable gun violence.

Editorial: Democrats' radical idea vs. GOP's trickle-down theory

Posted on July 7, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Give Vermont’s Democratic gubernatorial candidates an A-plus for optimism. They are doers, intent on making Vermont stronger, healthier, wealthier and smarter. With just a few degrees of separation between their stances, they would work to provide free tuition at state colleges, increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour, continue to build the state’s infrastructure (roads, bridges and railroads), strengthen downtowns, expand early childhood education, create more affordable housing, reduce Vermonter’s reliance on fossil fuels and create a more dynamic state economy.

Editorial: Phil Scott: Ready or not?

Posted on July 1, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



The challenge Republican Phil Scott has long foreseen in his race for the governorship is how to rise to star power without taking controversial positions that raise red flags to the moderate majorities in the state. He has done that well. By taking moderate stands on most controversial issues, he’s become known as the go-along to get-along candidate; a Mr. Nice Guy.

Nothing wrong with that when you’re number two (as lieutenant governor) or as one of the Republican minority in the Legislature.
