First the state officials denied there was anything amiss in their office building in Bennington, then the authorities stonewalled any investigation. Now, after two years of institutional foot dragging, those effected will have to wait until 2009 for an 'official' investigation to take place.
The same 'sick building' scenario exists at Burlington High School. Although the Burlington case has been around for nearly as long as Bennington's, it was not public knowledge until Tuesday's school board meeting. I'm glad to say on Wednesday night, Burlington's Board of Health [I am a commissioner] got into the thick of it, too, and will carry out an investigation.
