BARTON — Former state Senator Peter Galbraith, who hails from Townsend, visited the Northeast Kingdom on July 27. He was on a campaign swing to promote his bid for the Democratic nomination for Governor in the Primary on August 9.

Mr. Galbraith showed up at the Chronicle with a piece of strategic advice for those who dislike large-scale wind development.

“If you are opposed to industrial wind, you should vote for me in the Democratic Primary,” he said.

He explained his reasoning by noting that both Republican candidates favor a ban on industrial wind development.

Should he gain the nomination, he said, voters would be assured that wind development would stop regardless of which party wins in November.

Over slices of what Mr. Dunne called “the best pizza in Vermont,” 13 people from Orleans County brainstormed ideas for the state’s future. Mr. Dunne plans to e-mail a copy of the lists the group generated back to everyone who came to the meeting. He will also compare his notes from all over the state, looking for common threads that will become the core of his platform. He hopes to become aware of issues that are unique to one area or another, he said, so that he can serve those constituents better.

That’s not a surprising decision for the Republicans who represent the county, but as of this week only one of the three Democrats was willing to unequivocally say that he’ll follow tradition and support the candidate who won the popular vote.

Representative Sam Young of Glover said he will vote for Governor Shumlin.
