NEWPORT — Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Christine Hallquist will be touring Orleans County this Friday.
She will be at the Eastside in Newport from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., at Parker Pie in West Glover from 12:00 p.m. until 1:30 p.m., and at the Highland Lodge in Greensboro from 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
These events are open to the public and organizers say all are welcome.
Hallquist, the former CEO of Vermont Electric Cooperative, has said that her number one campaign issue is rural economic development.
She also says she advocates for a strong social safety net for Vermonters, universal healthcare, universal broadband, and a $15 minimum wage.
“We encourage everyone to come and meet Christine and learn more about what she can do to support the Northeast Kingdom,” said Mimi Smyth, chair of the Orleans County Democratic Committee.
