VT Digger journalist, John Herrick, reports, “In May 2012, the council voted 4-1 to oppose the basing of the F-35 with the Vermont Air Guard at Burlington International Airport. In response to a recent request that the council restate its position since adding two new members since the previous vote, the council voted 3-2 in support Monday night in a session attended by about 200 residents.
“Therefore, my vote against basing the F-35 in South Burlington, is a vote for our children,” Greco said, before receiving a standing ovation from other opponents in the room.”
