  • Pete Chagnon, a life-long Vermonter and proud U.S. Navy veteran, said the high cost of living in the state was a key factor in his decision to move to Maine instead of retiring his home state.

  • Essex County Democratic Election Commissioner Mark Whitney issued a belated ruling on specific challenges to petitions on Thursday, June 30, a procedure required by state law to weed out violations.

  • The race to unseat Essex County Clerk Joseph Provoncha (R) has entered the courtroom. Plaintiffs Win Belanger and Provoncha filed suit against challenger Luke Hudak (D) and the Essex County Board of Elections on Thursday, July 23 on the grounds that 92 of the signatures Hudak collected to gain ballot access are invalid.

  • Pictured: View of a SunCommon solar array at a residence from Dog Team Road in New Haven, Vt. The commercial array was built in 2014 in a residential zone. A similar commercial array is being proposed for a residential site Howland Road in Hubbardton, Vt.
