Parking garage story: weird framing, missing voices

BRATTLEBORO — First: Kevin O'Connor says the Selectboard has yet to approve any cameras, but board member Tim Wessel posted on Facebook that they approved replacing the parking garage's outdated camera system. Did Kevin not check the minutes before submitting his article? Or did Tim make a rare mistake in his public recap?

Also, “new tensions” is a weird framing for a 20-year-old problem! Almost as weird as reporting on that meeting without covering the half-dozen voices trying to remind everyone once again that this town did a Community Safety Review precisely to find solutions for problems just like this.
