MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury state Rep. Betty Nuovo has never been one to be intimidated by numbers — whether they be state statistics, budget numbers or long odds.

So it should come as no surprise that the county’s longest-serving legislator is not in the least bit fazed by the number 80, which was the birthday she marked late last year.

“I feel great,” said Nuovo, a Democrat who has spent more than a quarter-century in the Vermont House and will be asking voters this fall to give her another two years.

VERGENNES — Larry Carlson was on the waiting list for an apartment in the Vergennes Senior Housing building for more than three years. Once construction began, he checked back every week to see if he would get in. Now a resident of the newly opened facility off Armory Lane, he is thrilled with his experience.

“As soon as the architect first came out, I was over to the offices and signed up. I was here every single week to check and see how the progress was coming,” said Carlson.

Huntington joins county election scene

By John Flowers



HUNTINGTON — For the first time in decades, candidates competing for Addison County’s two state Senate seats will be straying north, rather than south, to pick up extra votes.

That’s because, barring a court challenge, Huntington and Buel’s Gore will soon join Addison County’s senatorial district in place of Brandon, which will return to Rutland County’s voting district. The Vermont Legislature and Gov. Peter Shumlin recently approved these changes as part of the decennial reapportionment process.
