For the first time in six years, the state’s gubernatorial race does not include an incumbent. That means AARP has a greater opportunity to help frame the agenda.
AARP Vermont met with each of the major-party candidates before the primary and published a voter guide to their positions on issues such as affordable utilities and ratepayer representation. In addition, AARP is sponsoring a candidates forum on Monday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center in South Burlington.
“With an open seat for governor, it’s critical that voters get to know the candidates,” said David Reville, a spokesman for AARP Vermont. “This forum is one more way AARP is helping the public learn where the candidates stand on issues, especially those that affect Vermonters age 50 and older.”
To register to attend the debate, go to aarp.cvent.com/GovForum2016 or call 877-926-8300 toll-free. Can’t attend? Then tune in to Vermont PBS Oct. 10 at 7:30 for a live broadcast. To read the voter guide, go to aarp.org/vtgovernor.
