Eric Davis: Milne hoping for instant-runoff win

Posted on November 26, 2014 |
By Eric L. Davis



For the third time in 12 years, Vermont’s Legislature will elect the governor in January, because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote on Election Day.

Opinion: Milne is backpedaling on his pre-election pledge

Posted on November 12, 2014 |
By Bob Zeliff



I’ve become disturbed in reading about Scott Milne spending time weighing his options concerning the election results.
