Burlington Free Press journalist, Sam Hemingway, quotes Progressive Party Chairman, Martha Abbott, stating, “(on Friday), the state Progressive Party urged its members to join Saturday’s (2pm downtown Rally & March at City Hall in BTV) against the F-35.
“The Air Force’s own studies say basing the F-35 in South Burlington could leave up to 3,000 homes and 7,000 people in a zone ‘generally not considered suitable for residential use,’” Progressive Party Chairman Martha Abbott said in a statement. “A disproportionate number of those affected would be low-income and immigrant Vermonters.”
