Editorial: Vermont's town meetings, school votes pose sharp contrast to national scene

Posted on March 3, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vermonters are fortunate today to live in a state where civic-minded progress overshadows the need by some to blame all things government for the recession and tepid economic recovery.

In states like Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and much of the deep South, taxpayers are taking their frustrations out on the budgets they can control — schools and towns — and selling the future of the younger generation down the drain.

By Angelo S. Lynn



In Bristol, town residents spoke clearly in a planning commission poll asking two very direct questions about where mineral extraction should be allowed. The answers confirmed past votes, surveys and public comments that have overwhelmingly opposed gravel pit operation near the village center or in the town’s conservation districts.

Politically Thinking: Governor should appoint commissioner

Next week, the House Education Committee will hold a hearing on a bill to designate the governor, rather than the state board of education, as the appointing authority for Vermont’s education commissioner.

The board of education consists of 10 members, appointed by the governor for six-year terms. During a governor’s elected term of two years, he or she can appoint only three or four members of the state board. The governor would need two terms, or four years, to appoint a majority of the members of the board of education.

Lincoln OKs spending for school work

 

LINCOLN — Residents of Lincoln this week were asked to approve a $2 million school repair bond and a budget for the coming year that features higher spending than last year.

The fact that townspeople had rejected the same bond proposal in January raised the stakes even higher.

In paper balloting on the school budget at town meeting Monday night and in Australian balloting on the bond Tuesday, Lincoln voters gave the Lincoln Community School a new breath of life.
