Editor’s Note July 17, 11:06 a.m.: The Vermont Journal and The Shopper retracts the article entitled “Cavendish residents continue discussion on Tierney Road” by Thomas Foster in the July 11, 2018 edition of The Vermont Journal. The article misrepresented public comments from the Cavendish Select Board meeting on Monday, July 9.
In her request to the Select Board, Cavendish resident Linda Watson had not demanded action but had stated, “We respectfully ask that this proposed ordinance be transmitted to our Town Counsel tomorrow morning and that he inform the Town Manager, members of the Select Board and myself of his legal analysis no later than Thursday, July 12. We again, respectfully ask the Select Board to reconvene in order to vote on the adoption of this measure one week from today on Monday, July 16.”
We apologize to Linda Watson and other community members whose comments were taken out of context or misquoted. The Vermont Journal and The Shopper remains neutral on this issue, as well as all other news topics that we cover.
Going forward, our staff and writers of The Vermont Journal will do everything to the best of our ability to accurately record, write, and publish community news.
