Davis & Hodgdon Associates was very pleased to sponsor the September 28th gubernatorial debate between Sue Minter and Phil Scott at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland!
VTDigger, September 29, 2016 – Gubernatorial candidates Sue Minter and Phil Scott presented sharply different visions for the future of Vermont before a packed house at the Paramount Theater in downtown Rutland. The debate, hosted by VTDigger and Castleton University, covered a wide range of issues from refugee resettlement and the fate of Vermont Health Connect to the candidates’ positions on marriage equality, death with dignity, and the Second Amendment.
Hours after the State Department announced that Rutland had been selected as a resettlement site for up to 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees, the candidates were asked if they support the program and if they’d put a cap on the total number of refugees brought into the state.
Scott said he was generally supportive of resettlement but that the process in Rutland was flawed. “It should’ve been done in a much different way,” he said. “I think 100 sounds like a lot but I think the mayor has determined that’s the number that should be coming to Rutland.”
