I know the state as a whole is progressive for the most part. Which towns/cities do you think are the MOST progressive? Thanks everyone.

The state is not all "progressive." Brattleboro or Burlington are though.

You may find this interesting: a young guy just posted an analysis comparing Vermont legislators and their party affiliation and loyalty with the party leanings of their districts:

I would pick Bratt for the most progressive/liberal city and Plainfield or Putney the most liberal small towns.

During the great hippie migration of the 60's/70's from the armpit section of the northeast many drove up in barely drivable vehicles with little money so Bratt was the first city coming up on I91 so when their car broke down or they ran out of money Bratt became home. Plainfield cause of Goddard College. When the college decided several years ago to go from a regular residential program to off campus many had no place to go so they just stayed in Plainfield.

Brattleboro is a town, not a city. It's the major town in Southeastern Vermont, but it is just a town.

When did liberals turn into progressives? Why is it only liberal progressives are considered green? Alternate energy my be driven by greenies but it's the old time American businessman who will build the wind and solar farms and invest in reasearch to develope alternate energy sources for one reason only...a profit.

No one is saying that businessmen looking for a profit can't be liberal.

Also "progressive" is the new buzzword for liberals. It's the term liberals are using to get rid fo the term "liberal" because "liberal" has negative connotations. It's silly really.
