Why Phil Scott Didn’t Go to Thursday’s Gubernatorial Debate


Republican candidate for Vermont Governor, Phil Scott, left his seat open on Thursday at the Tunbridge debate against Democrat Sue Minter. 

Scott stayed in Colchester while his opponent debated in the WDEV hosted event only invited major party candidates to participate.  Scott says if he is going to participate in events all parties must be invited. 

“There are three candidates that are listed with the Secretary of State at this time I thought it was appropriate to hear all views. I have made it my public life, and my political life to listen to all points of views,” said Scott.

Scott released his comprehensive economic development plan at Fire-Tech Sprinklers in Colchester. 

He said he thought it was an appropriate place, surrounded by longtime friends to share the information.

Scott says his twelve part plan confronts the affordability crisis in Vermont, which includes making good homes available to working families.  As well as creating more jobs, and more job training.
