It’s been 14 years since Dean Corren left the Vermont House. But with the state moving ever closer to providing universal health insurance coverage, he says it’s time to get back in the game.
“I think this one of the most exciting times since I’ve been involved in Vermont and Vermont politics,” the Burlington Progressive says. “I think we’re on the verge of doing things we’ve been talking about for many decades — things the people want and the politicians are catching up with.”
Corren announced Wednesday that he plans to challenge Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Scott for the state’s number two office. He’s joining a field that already includes John Bauer, a Democratic Party activist from Jeffersonville, and Marina Brown, a Liberty Union Party candidate from Charleston.
