The seeds of public awareness of decades of monolithic mainstream media lies, news manipulation & deception sown by a maverick president, who is surely backed by a segment of Wall Street investors whose portfolios are NOT heavily weighted toward the manufacture WMDs and expected gargantuan profits from a new world war, will eventually grow public understanding of US crimes against humanity that began in Korea and continued on
‘What? our ‘crazy’ president’s National Security Advisor was making nice with a Russian ambassador even before he was appointed? We got ‘em! It’s against the law! ‘
Below is information that might be helpful to know for March 7th local elections.
Attached is a sample ballot from each of Brattleboro’s three districts. All districts’ ballots are the same except for Town Meeting Members for each district. Absentee ballots are currently available at the Town Clerk’s Office and may be requested until 5:00 pm on Monday, March 6.
Polling place for all three districts in Brattleboro is the Selectboard Meeting Room, second floor of the Municipal Center, 230 Main Street, Room 212, from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm on March 7, 2017.
The entire back parking lot at the Municipal Center will be reserved for voters on election day. There are handicapped parking spaces close to the back entrance.
A mile is four times around the track. Each lap can be seen as a year, with a full presidental term of office being a mile.
This administration, after four weeks out of the blocks, has covered a bit more than 100 ft. of that mile. Pace wins races.
So far stiff headwinds, skipping lanes, some doping, and stalking horses doing their thing. Still holding rallies yet not out of the first turn (which seems weird, kind of like stretching after the race has started).
Any early indications or predictions of how this ends?
We hope you enjoy this interview with Rich Holshuh regarding a Representative Town Meeting article advising Brattleboro change to Indigenous Peoples' Day.
What question would you like Brattleboro to vote on?
To simply change the holiday observed on the second Tuesday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day.
Why is this an issue for Brattleboro?
Trump calls mainstream reporters and commentators 80% liars. Blood soaked war-promoting CIA fed monopolized mainstream media accusing Trump supporters and allies of ‘fake news’ has backfired. Essay traces history of genocide justifying media in America. Ramsey Clark expects eventual prosecution of media executives and media celebrities. Five Nazi media celebrities were convicted a Nuremberg. Two hanged.
We hope you enjoy this interview with David Schoales, candidate for Brattleboro Selectboard.
Which seat are you running for, and why do you want to be on the Selectboard again?
I am running for the three year seat and I want to serve a few more years to help assure the good progress we made over the past four years continues as new members gradually replace us.

I've served on a day care board, health center board, land trust board, school boards, union boards- lots of experience working with others to get things done that will help my neighbors. I'm a good listener, a strong advocate, I love learning new stuff, and I care a lot about what happens to people.
The set is dressed up, down to the smallest detail. Actors are in place. The director cues lights, camera, slate, calls out, “Action”. Everything animates, yet moments later, as if taking back time itself the director cries out, “Cut! Cut!..” By the furrow in their brow, everyone knows Maestro is not happy. Something is amiss.
In this instance, fictional as it may be, actors playing Nazis, (or Terrorists, or Banditos) despite being members of the ethnic group that are represented stereotypically, are not being authentic enough. They’re somehow not menacing, leering, or dark enough to satisfy the director’s vision. This auteur is known as a tyrant, goes for hyper-realism, stark verisimilitude.
While the Vermont state legislature might come up with another new proposed marijuana legalization bill, Vermonters who are low income are struggling with the new vehicle inspection law.
I would suggest that all old cars and vans which will not meet inspection requirements can be used to create a new product line: old vans and cars can be re-created into green houses, and meet requirements, if marijuana is legalized, for secure locked growing facilities.
We hope you enjoy this interview with Davey Cadran, candidate for the Brattleboro Selectboard.
Which seat are you running for, and why do you want to be on the Selectboard?
I am currently running for one of the two open one-year seats on the Selectboard. I previously ran for the Selectboard and I believe that some of the issues facing the town then are still facing us now. Particularly around economic development and a pro-business atmosphere. I have had several conversations with business owners in the community who feel that the town is either outwardly against their business or suffering a form of complacency. They actually want the government to do more. You don't often hear that from business owners.

Brattleboro is an incredible town that suffers from a lack of good middle-class jobs. Go out and find someone in their late 20's in this town and ask them what they do for work. They will often tell you that they have to string along multiple jobs just to get by.
A brief message from Hilary Francis, Town Clerk in Brattleboro:
"Avery Schwenk has withdrawn his candidacy for the one year Selectboard seat."
