Grand Isle rep expects to be back

For most of the legislative session, Rep. Ira Trombley, D-Grand Isle, listened in on Health Care Committee discussions by phone and floor sessions via the Internet from home. He was hobbled by an infected foot that would not heal.

Trombley felt as obtrusive as an elephant showing up at the Statehouse for the same-sex marriage veto vote in a van and hobbling into the chamber on crutches with his IV pack, but few people in the crowd knew what he was going through.

All that's in the past. Now, Trombley is on the mend, he said today.

He's been cleared by doctors to return to work as an alcohol counselor and he expects to be there June 2, perhaps on crutches or using a cane, when the Legislature returns for a special session on the budget.

Trombley wasn't there for the votes on the budget during the session, but he said he expects to vote for an override of the governor's budget veto if it comes to that.

So is Representative Trombley number 101 or 102?
Maybe now he will have a better idea of what we private citizens go through in this health care mess that we have.
Legislators aren't provided health care. The governor is and has had the best health care our money could provide...for all his professional life. You're welcome, Jim.
Jim Douglas has been feeding at teh public trough his entire work career!
"Jim Douglas has been feeding at teh public trough his entire work career!"

But not quite as long as Bernie.
Actually... Douglas has been feeding at the public trough for longer than Bernie.

Bernie at least has earned his money with vision and leadership on the issues that matter for Vermonters - hence his "stronger than Douglas" vote totals!
