VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb speaks with Allen
Gilbert, Executive Director of the Vermont chapter of the ACLU prior to Thursday’s conference with civil liberties groups who are concerned about the lack of government transparency in Vermont.
Vermont received an F in a survey on campaign finance disclosure. We look at why the state fared so poorly and what can be done to improve transparency in this area. Plus, we hear about a Catholic relic that has been in Vermont since the 1890s.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont is
suing Brattleboro police for arresting
protesters at a speech by the governor. Governor Jim Douglas was speaking at the Latchis
Theater in Brattleboro last March when four audience
members rose from their seats.
