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



The 2009 session and you

We are running this appeal in the paper, but I thought I'd post it here too. FYI: We don't use your comments unless you include name and contact info.

The 2009 legislative session starts in January and we want your opinion. What do you think Gov. Jim Douglas and the Legislature should do in response to the current economic downturn? Send your responses by Dec. 23 to Terri Hallenbeck at thallenb@bfp.burlingtonfreepress.com with your name, town, occupation and telephone number.

I'd like to see the state cut its budget and cut taxes.

But this is Vermont, so I can't say that publicly without being accused of being a Scrooge.
I believe the legislature needs to be realistic in what they can do - stop trying to solve global warming and world hunger and get back to basics.
Add 10 cents on the gas tax - no one will feel the pain and the state could raise money fast.
