SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -
South Burlington is saying no to the new F-35 fighter jet.
The Vermont Air Guard is on the short list to host the new jets. The Guard says becoming an F-35 base is critical to preserve Guard jobs in South Burlington.
But the South Burlington City Council voted Monday night to submit a "no" opinion to the Air Force, which is reviewing comments and will make the final decision on where the F-35s actually land.
So the City council voted to tell the USAF that they did not want the F-35. Do you think it will matter in the end?
