Political notes from Free Press staff writers Terri Hallenbeck, Sam Hemingway and Nancy Remsen



Man on the street

Incumbent state senator Ed Flanagan obviously wants to make sure voters see he's no invalid following a serious car accident a year ago that kept him away from his elected job for all but one day last winter.

Wednesday, Flanagan stood in the median on the Williston Road overpass in South Burlington, waving to commuters. It's not the first time he has been spotted doing the public political wave.

It's important for him to be seen now, because Flanagan is one of eight Democrats in the Chittenden Senate District vying in Tuesday's primary election for six slots on the November ballot.

- Nancy Remsen

Know one can hang off the side of a road like Ed can.
My sympathies go to Ed and his family for what they endured related to his accident. However, Chittenden County can't afford another unrepresented term due to unforeseen-but-likely medical circumstances.

Ed should bow out gracefully.
