Publisher: What a week it’s been

By Guy Page

I think it’s been quite a week for Vermont news. And I’m hoping you think so, too.

On Monday, Vermont Daily Chronicle reported that the Vermont Secretary of State is installing Dominion voting machines in every municipality using voting tabulators. These are the same systems that the federal government says has security vulnerabilities. If you missed it, you can read it here:

VT Secretary of State installing new Dominion ballot counting machines

Tuesday, we confirmed what many Vermonters have long wondered: Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George has strong ties with radical activist and financier George Soros:

Sarah George a rising star in Soros-backed group backing progressive prosecutors

On Wednesday, we reported on St. Albans kicking a black member off of its Belonging, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Keith Longmore and his MAGA perspective was deemed “disruptive” and “unmanageable” by civic leaders and community members. Read what happened, and what Longmore makes of it all:

On Thursday, we described in detail how Vermont and New Hampshire law enforcement responded with charges and an emergency protection order after a Canaan parent threatened to get a gun and kill people if any drag queens appear in Canaan schools:

Fear of drag queen show prompted Canaan school threat: court records

As of this writing, Friday’s edition is under construction. So far, the most interesting read IMHO is how Florida manages to build new single family homes when Vermont doesn’t, or just plain won’t.  

Of course, these daily stories are just a tenth of all of this week’s news coverage and commentary – not to mention the provocative comments made by our readers.

In addition to publishing 10 news and commentaries Mon-Fri, on Wednesday your editor & publisher found the time to drive to the Waterbury studios of WDEV to guest-host Common Sense Radio. That was a lot of fun! I wish I could do it more, and will if given the opportunity. 

I’m writing this rather self-congratulatory, end-of-the-week column because I want you to know that Vermont Daily Chronicle relies on its readers. Our news is free to read, but not free to produce.
