Spotlight on the Vermont Senate race 2018
ADDISON COUNTY — It has been a very long time since Addison County has seen more than four candidates at one time vying for our two Vermont Senate seats. But this Nov. 6 there will be six candidates on the ballot for the seats representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.
With the unusual number of candidates in the race, we have taken the unusual step of giving each of them room to provide extended, 300-500-word comment on five important issues facing Vermonters today. In today’s issue, and in successive Thursday editions, we will publish their responses to one of the five issues.
The hope is that voters will have a better picture of the candidates and what they could expect of them in office.
The candidates, in alphabetical order, are Marie Audet (Independent), Christopher Bray (Democrat), Peter Briggs (Republican), Archie Flower (Libertarian), Ruth Hardy (Democrat) and Paul Ralston (Independent).
In the coming weeks the candidates will address the dairy industry, water quality/Lake Champlain, climate change, education, and health care/affordable housing.
