Barre survey had low response for such a hot-button issue

Posted 11 August 2020 at 6:58 am


Sounds like the phony baloney “survey” in Barre was a bust. Less than 25% of households are opposed to the project. The opponents will spread the falsehood that 70% are opposed.

That’s a bold-faced lie. A similar lie was spread by SOS in the Town of Yates, where I live. Real pollsters are laughing at your 35% response rate on a “hot button” issue. Anyone appearing before the Barre Town Board meeting this week and saying “survey says 70%” will have the same nose as Pinocchio.

Barre residents, don’t be swayed by a handful of well-to-do radicals who don’t care how much you pay in taxes.
