Disappointing to see Burlington Mayor @MiroBTV siding with the police and the status quo over the needs of the people of #BTV, particularly the BIPOC community. (1/5) #vtpoli https://t.co/iYVyG6aIIA

This is a failure of leadership, a wasted opportunity, and an affront to community members most impacted by police violence, particularly #BTV's Black and Brown communities. (2/5) #vtpoli

1/5 Greenway update: The Path has been plowed. Due to it being a few days after the storm and having had a lot of use, some sections were well compacted making the path rather slippery. Good snow to ski on, but be cautious running and walking. #btv #btvgreenway https://t.co/zCH3hxkksY

I have a definite favorite in the mayoral election. However, I'm not going to tell you. I don't need the hate mail.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
Reason spoiled, marred, or robbed of its perfection, ceaseth to be rational, and should not be called reason; inasmuch as it is premised to be depraved, or degenerated from a rational nature; and in consequence of the deprivation of its nature, should also be deprived of its name, and called subterfuge, or some such like name, which might better define its real character. Those who invalidate reason, ought seriously to consider, "whether they argue against reason, with or without reason; if with reason, then they establish the principle, that they are laboring to dethrone;" but if they argue without reason, (which, in order to be consistent with themselves, they must do,) they are out of the reach of rational conviction, nor do they deserve a rational argument.
