The Vermont Democratic Party has launched a Web site with a day-by-day countdown over the next 100 days of "Jim Douglas' real record."
The entries so far:
100. Under Jim Douglas' failed leadership, the gap between rich and poor is growing faster in Vermont that any other state but one. (Vermont Housing and Finance Agency)
99. Under Jim Douglas' failed leadership, 35 percent of Vermont's 2,700 bridges are either structurally deficient or functionally obsolete -- that's eighth worst in the nation. (Federal Highway Administration)
98. Douglas' so-called "Comprehensive Energy Plan" mentions the potential risks associated with radiation from Vermont Yankee only once. In a footnote. (DPS Energy Plan 2009, p.69)
97. Under Jim Douglas' failed leadership, good jobs are leaving the state: Vermont has lost 2,800 high paying jobs in the manufacturing sector since Douglas took office, a 7.3 percent drop. (Vermont Economic & Labor Market Information).
