By Addison Independent



Editor’s note: Lt. Gov. Phil Scott was sworn in this morning for his second two-year term as Vermont’s lieutenant governor. After taking the oath of office from Sen. Dick Mazza, D-Chittenden/Grand Isle, Lt. Gov. Scott offered the following remarks.

Good morning. First, I’d like to thank Vermonters for the opportunity to serve the state for another two years. It truly is an honor for me to serve as Vermont’s Lt. Governor. To think a Barre-born stock car racer like myself would ever have an opportunity such as this is truly incredible.
