MIDDLEBURY — State Sen. Doug Racine, D-Richmond, came within a few percentage points of becoming Vermont’s governor in 2002. He lost that race to current Gov. James Douglas, but is banking on being on the positive side of the voting ledger against a different field of opponents next year.

Racine, one of the first declared gubernatorial candidates for 2010, discussed his candidacy and the issues that he believes will shape the race, during a far ranging interview at the Addison Independent on Monday.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury native Olivier Knox spends a lot of time doing translation.
It’s not really language translation — although he is a correspondent for Agence France-Presse (AFP), the oldest and third-largest news agency in the world. He has worked as a journalist in Washington, D.C., since 1996, and writes his stories in English.

But the translation he does is cultural — explaining what goes on in Washington from an international perspective.

By John Flowers



STARKSBORO — A political consultant would advise most new candidates to start off aspiring to a lower rung on the electoral ladder than lieutenant governor.

Barbara Snelling, Republican Mark Snelling confirmed on Tuesday his plans to seek the state’s second-highest executive post in the November 2010 elections.

MONTPELIER — In the wake of Thursday’s announcement by Gov. Jim Douglas that he would not seek re-election, speculation has focused on the mix of candidates likely to compete for the gubernatorial post.

Longtime Vermont political observer Eric Davis, Middlebury College professor emeritus of political science, said Douglas’s announcement was clearly timed “to give other candidates time to organize campaigns. The Democrats are out there already.”
