Salmon tries to 'shine light' on Vt. finances

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Calculators, pens, pencils and computers are common tools of the trade among auditors.

Vermont State Auditor Thomas Salmon said he uses an extra, figurative tool in his arsenal: A spotlight.

“You’ve got to have a guy like me that wants to facilitate turning the lights on,” Salmon, who is running for re-election this Nov. 2, said during a Monday interview at the Addison Independent.

The 47-year-old Republican from St. Johnsbury faces opposition from Doug Hoffer of Burlington, who defeated former state Auditor Ed Flanagan in a Democratic primary contest in August.

MIDDLEBURY — Doug Hoffer, Democratic candidate for state auditor, has based his campaign on two principles: asking tough questions of government and state policies, and making sure the numbers cited in studies and reports — as well as those used by the Legislature and political leaders — contain the full picture of any issue, not just a slice of the pie to favor one political perspective over the other.

LEICESTER — In front of a group of his peers on Tuesday morning, third-grader Noah Witt’s hair was standing on end.

This wasn’t just some kind of pre-Halloween trick. Standing in the National Science Center Mobile Discovery Unit — an 18-wheeler — Witt was feeling the effects of static electricity being pumped through his body by a Van de Graaf generator.

Students from Leicester Central School, Whiting Elementary School and Sudbury Country School gathered in Leicester on Tuesday to spend an hour inside the semi-trailer truck equipped with a full array of science gadgets.
