First ever gubernatorial candidate forum centered on a Vermont “Clean Water Economy." Moderated by Peter Hirschfeld of Vermont Public Radio.
The scope of issues related to water and the economy include: drinking water infrastructure, wastewater infrastructure, sustainable agriculture, TMDLs impacting several waterbodies statewide, renewable energy, water-based tourism, recreational waters, fish and wildlife, and the most recent ACCD CEDS Report which declares that in 200 of our 251 communities insufficient water/wastewater infrastructure limits economic opportunities. Democrats Peter Galbraith, Sue Minter, and Matt Dunne and Republicans Bruce Lisman and Phil Scott have all confirmed their participation.
