We demand that Senator Patrick Leahy, Senator Bernie Sanders, Congressman Peter Welch and Governor Peter Shumlin halt plans to station the F-35 stealth bombers at the Vermont Air National Guard base in South Burlington.
The F-35, among many reasons to oppose it, is super loud, will be harmful to our communities, schools and property values, is a record-setting waste of money when we need real jobs programs, and is an aggressive instrument of war.
Oct 26, 2017 The Department of Defense (DOD) is sustaining over 250 F-35 aircraft (F-35) and plans to triple the fleet by the end of 2021, but is facing sustainment challenges that are affecting warfighter readiness (see table).
These challenges are largely the result of sustainment plans that do not fully include key requirements or aligned (timely and sufficient) funding.
DOD is taking steps to address some challenges, but without more comprehensive plans and aligned funding, DOD risks being unable to fully leverage the F-35’s capabilities and sustain a rapidly expanding fleet.
[FULL ARTICLE] By William Boardman March 29, 2018 What happens when the lives of citizens get in the way of political egos?
Now it’s coming to a head in a people versus career politicians face-off.
At a Town Meeting on March 6, Burlington voters chose, by a 55% majority, to ask the Air Force to base the F-35 in some other state.
On March 26, the Burlington City Council, by a 9-3 vote, forwarded that request to Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson to “replace the planned basing of the F-35 with a basing of a low-noise-level plane with a proven high safety record….” For whatever reason, the council request left out the rest of the ballot resolution’s request: “…
proven high safety record appropriate for a densely populated area” (perhaps because that densely populated area is NOT Burlington).
The City Council asked Secretary Wilson to respond by May 1.
Vermont’s quisling Congressional delegation – Democratic senator Patrick Leahy, Independent senator Bernie Sanders, and Democratic congressman Peter Welch – made what looks like a cheap shot effort to influence the council vote at the last minute.
