    Channel 17 Welcomes New Trustee for Winooski, Michele Palardy

    It would be great to get more people involved in voting. I’ve stood at the senior center on voting day and I wish voter turnout was bigger. Maybe the media could help spur that on more? Community media could be used for getting important topics out there to the people of Winooski. A lot of things that people don’t know - They don’t know there is a community center, that there is a group against the F35s, general information about the city. Until the F35 issue came up, I paid my taxes, loved Winooski, but wasn’t involved. Now that I’ve gotten involved, I’ve met people and I have made real connections.
