Contests set for Vergennes city council, VUES board seats

Posted on January 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Town Meeting Day ballot will offer two contested races, including a rematch of a 2012 contest decided by one vote, and a petitioned article.

It will not include Senior Alderman Randy Ouellette, who did not file a petition by Monday’s deadline and will step down after a decade.

One of the races is the second go-around between Susan Ferland and Cheryl Brinkman for the seat on the Vergennes Union Elementary School board now held by Ferland. Both are seeking a three-year term.

VERGENNES — For Vergennes Union High School junior Emma Gardner and the other 22 members of the school’s Humanities class, Jan. 22 loomed large.

The members of the class had spent a semester researching topics of their choice for the interdisciplinary Humanities course. That morning, the time had come for each to deliver a 10-minute roundtable presentation in the school library based on the 10-page papers they had already written based on that research.

It really bothered me a few years ago when the Supreme Court declared that corporations are people.
