Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie wasn’t at Thursday’s health care forum in Brattleboro but he was the target, nonetheless. Democrat Cheryl Rivers and Progressive Steve Hingtgen criticized the incumbent Republican for not attending. They say it’s an issue of critical importance to voters and he should have showed up.
Dubie’s campaign declined the invitation from the Vermont Citizens Campaign for Health. Aides to Dubie say he’s accepted enough invitations to debates and forums.
