To the Editor:

We do not understand how the town's ZBA could approve the permit application for even a "downsized" "event barn" at the Barrows House when last year's vote by town residents overwhelmingly went against this concept. My wife and I were proud to have participated in this example of true Vermont democracy on the ground level, so to speak. Now it appears it was all for naught! It's no wonder that many people are thoroughly fed up with their political "leaders" at local, state and federal levels. Throw them all out!
