Brumstead announcing candidacy

To the Editor: I am announcing today that I will seek the Democratic nomination for the Vermont House of Representatives seat in the Chittenden 5-2 District, the eastern section of Shelburne and the town of St. George. I am running for the seat occupied the past 10 years by Rep. Joan Lenes-D, who has announced […]

The town that roared

Thank you to the scores of people who came to Sunday’s march and rally to halt Vermont Rail System’s proposed massive rail and trucking operation on the banks of the LaPlatte River. It was inspiring to see so many people (despite the rain) from Shelburne, Charlotte, and all over Chittenden County–so many students and so […]

Protest of traveling animal circus acts

We are writing on behalf of Green Mountain Animal Defenders to express our disappointment that the CV Expo has once again made a decision to bring a traveling animal act to Essex Junction. Sadly, camels, zebras, elephants, big cats, bears, primates, and other wild animals who are used in many circuses must often endure inhumane […]

Vermont United stands for responsible railways

On behalf of so many concerned Shelburnites, the Vermont United working group would like to thank Kate Webb and Joan Lenes. The citizens of Shelburne are most fortunate to have you both engaged in and understanding of the critical issues we are facing regarding Vermont Rail System’s proposed transfer and storage rail yard. We also […]

Ingram for State Senate

I’d like to announce my candidacy as a Democrat for State Senate from Chittenden County. I’m currently serving my fifth year on the Williston Selectboard, after five years on the Williston Planning Commission. I think of myself as a public servant, not a politician, because that was the way I was brought up – my father […]

Thank you from Ron Bouchard

Dear Shelburne residents, It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve the citizens of our town as a member of the Planning Commission for the last seven years. I have been extremely fortunate to serve with such a dedicated group of individuals who I truly believe always had the best interests of the […]

Commerce and community, industry and neighbors

Having experienced the frustrating and disillusioning process of a legally preempted industrial project in my own neighborhood, I have been closely following the progression of litigation and negotiation regarding Vermont Rail’s proposed industrial facility in Shelburne. In light of the offensive and defensive maneuverings of both sides, it remains clear that open, honest and civil […]

Paying close attention to the issues at hand

Vermont Rail System’s David Wulfson sugarcoats the facts, and out and out bends the truth to his benefit. He has a pattern of this type of behavior. In Charlotte he failed to follow the hazardous materials plan, potentially endangering surrounding residents to the point VELCO nearly turned off power to allay the fire hazard of […]

Consequences of a major salt distribution facility

My wife and I have been Shelburne residents since 1984 and raised our two daughters here. After living in Colchester and Hinesburg since 1970, we chose to move to Shelburne for its beauty and proximity to Burlington. I was shocked, as were most town residents, by the arrogant disregard by Mr. David Wulfson on how […]
