Here We Go Again? Remember The Millions Spent “Retrofitting” Chittenden For Women A Few Years Back–And Northwest State A Few Years Before That? Only To Abandon Them?
From a 2012 AP story about women being moved from St. Albans to Burlington:
“The move of women from the St. Albans to South Burlington was the third in eight years and came as Gov. Peter Shumlin’s administration said it wanted to reduce prison populations and make greater use of programs in which inmates — especially women — would work or take classes outside prison as they prepare for full re-entry into the community.
The women’s latest move came about six months ago, and [DOC Commissioner Andy] Pallito said settling them into their new location was still a work in progress. “We’ve had some successes, but we still have some work to do.”Like musical chairs… expensive musical chairs.
