On April 9th, over 100 residents of Bennington County gathered for a panel hosted by Rights & Democracy to hear from Vermont's gubernatorial candidates. Democrats Matt Dunne, Peter Galbraith, and Sue Minter, as well as Republican Bruce Lisman attended. A range of topics were covered, from economic revitalization, to raising the minimum wage, to our school system, to climate change, paid family leave, and water quality.
“It was nice to hear the views,” said Lee Russ of Bennington. “We’ll have trouble deciding because they’re all in favor of good paying jobs, a clean environment, and quality education. The question is how we get there, and we need more specifics.”
CATV filmed the panel, which you can watch here:
“We’re grateful you’ve come all the way south to discuss things with us on an individual basis,” said moderator Mary Gerish of Bennington during her introduction of the candidates. After the panel she said, “People kept coming up to me to tell me how great it was to hear from the candidates.”
Several audience questions that were not addressed are posted on Rights and Democracy's website at radvt.org/bennington_audience_questions and have been shared with the candidates.
