So you run this with a photo of the senator next to Cathy Bergmann, who wants to drastically cut fire protection in the village and played no role in getting this grant? Never can the Reformer do enough to further the political career of Ms. Bergmann!

Wouldn't it be amazing to see another huge amount of federal monies be flushed down the toilet by shutting down the bellows falls fire dept. You can see how happy Cathy is as she stands next to Bill and the money she wants to toss. If people in the firehouse are always sleeping how much of the grant writing was done in their sleep. I wish I could accomplish such a great result while sleeping.

Oh this is such good news about Bellows Falls.. I'm glad the senior center will be given money. It does such a good job for the seniors in the area.

Man, Bill Weston is a fat man cow. Maybe the town should fire him and appoint a chief that can tie his own shoes, climb a ladder, man a hose, and safe some lives. The town better be cautious! Bill might start fires so he can steal the other guys lunches whil their on the call. No wonder the police are always at the station, they dont want their dinners going to the human garbage disposal that is your towns fire chief.

Bernie talked about having strong communities and strong police and fire departments. I don't think he would have stood next to Cathy Bergmann knowing she was trying to gut those departments! What an absolute lack of vision on that board of Trustees.

Scott, Cathy and Dennis are all the same with Stefan supporting them on camera, but off camera, he doesn't.

Common Sence where do you live ? I bet not here in the Village. Cathy has never once tried to gut the Police Dept or has the other Trustees. As for the Fire Dept what I see is their trying to make it affordable. I see and hear alot of complaints but not alot of action at the meetings from taxpayers. Taxpayers need to start attending and getting involved.

Thank you Bernie for another good job well done. Vermont is fortunate for the representation we have. No wonder those from other locals are envious.
