history in the making

The Burlington Free Press didn’t cover the historic debate held on the campus of the Austine School for the Deaf last night between Bernie Sanders (Independent), Pete Diamondstone (Liberty Union), and Rich Tarrant (Republican), moderated by Dr. Anne Potter, Director of the Austine School. As far as anyone at the school could determine, a political debate of such stature has never been held on a deaf campus before, and certainly never been moderated by a Deaf person.
The Brattleboro Reformer announced the event, but apparently didn’t cover it? Perhaps they are holding the story for the weekend edition? The debate was recorded and will be shown on Brattleboro’s public television channel.
