State Sen. Ed Flanagan is running for lieutenant governor.
The former state auditor says he believes the lieutenant governor’s office could be better used to help with the state’s economic recovery.
If elected, he says he would bring together the business community, working Vermonters and the Legislature to find solutions.
The Chittenden County Democrat says his experience in the executive branch as auditor for eight years and five years in the Senate makes him well-equipped for the job.
It’s unknown if Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie will seek re-election.
Another Democrat, Vermont House Majority Leader Floyd Nease, is considering entering the race.
