Brattleboro Citizens’ Breakfast Invitation
Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott issued the following statement regarding the passing of Timothy O’Connor, Jr., former Speaker of the Vermont House of Representatives:
The O’Connors have been friends since I was a young lawyer starting my practice. Tim had such a great sense of humor, especially when it involved the Irish. I told Martha this morning how I will miss him but that I’ll look, every day, at the walking stick he brought me from Ireland.

I kept hearing that if it was turned down “the state will impose” a plan on the towns. But I also know there’s some sort of alternative group that has apparently already been meeting and is now maybe gearing up to provide an alternative proposal to the state before whatever the deadline is for that.

Maggie Koerth-Baker wrote a story at fivethrityeight.com (a site that loves statistics) warning that .
“Vermonters today are feeling the shock and sorrow that the entire country is feeling about the massacre in Las Vegas. We want all of these victims and their families to know that our hearts are broken and we stand in solidarity with them and with all of the people of Las Vegas. We are still learning the facts, but it’s painfully clear that yesterday will go down as one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.
“WASHINGTON – Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) issued the following statement in response to the deadly shooting in LasVegas:
“I know I join all Vermonters in reacting with horror and utter disbelief to the slaughter of innocent life in LasVegas early this morning. It’s hard for any of us to imagine the sheer terror experienced by concertgoers running fortheir lives, unsure of the depraved shooter’s location. It’s hard to imagine the inconsolable grief being experienced by thefamilies of the victims. And it’s hard to fathom the inaction of Congress in the face of so many mass shootings in thiscountry.What will it take to pass common sense gun laws that take guns out of the hands of people who should not have them? We pray for those injured and killed. And we are grateful yet again for the brave first responders who stopped the shooter and selflessly came to the aid of hundreds of innocent victims.”” https://welch.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/welch-statement-las-vegas-shooting
