MIDDLEBURY — Rutland City Treasurer Wendy Wilton likes a challenge. So after helping her hometown get its once-disheveled fiscal house in order, the Rutland Republican now has her sights set on the state treasurer’s office. On Nov. 6, she hopes to unseat incumbent state Treasurer Beth Pearce, a Barre Democrat (see related story).
“This is the first time the treasurer’s office has been a competitive race in 20 years,” Wilton said during a recent interview with the Addison Independent. “There are some big issues at stake.”
