STARKSBORO — A political consultant would advise most new candidates to start off aspiring to a lower rung on the electoral ladder than lieutenant governor.
But when the candidate’s last name is Snelling, one can throw conventional political wisdom out the window. The son of the late Vermont Gov. Richard Snelling and former Lt. Gov. Barbara Snelling, Republican Mark Snelling confirmed on Tuesday his plans to seek the state’s second-highest executive post in the November 2010 elections.
