Brattleboro Rejects Nudity Ban

FOR DOWNLOAD MORE GALLERY In a stunning turn of events, the Brattleboro Selectboard has voted down an ordinance banning public nudity, after a proposed amendment to strike out the words "breasts" and "buttocks" was passed. The swing vote in the Vermont town went to Dick DeGray who said that he could not vote for anything but the original ordinance.
For (Dora) Bouboulis, a strong opponent of the ordinance, said it was about rights, and that it wouldn't matter if even 99.9 percent of residents supported it, it is not up to the board to restrict those rights.

"We in this country are going down a slippery slope these days," she said. She also stated that a headline from a national newspaper that ran an article about the emergency ordinance read "Tolerant town gets intolerant." She doesn't want to see a town that has to put more and more legislation on the books to try and become a good place to live.
