League of Women Voters Hosts Lieutenant Governor Forum

September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Join us in St. Johnsbury for the in-person Lieutenant Governor Candidate Forum beginning with a meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m.

The two major party candidates participating are Senator Joe Benning (Republican-Caledonia) and David Zuckerman (Progressive/Democrat). Ian Diamondstone (Green Mountain Party) has been invited. Tom McKone, former Executive Director of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, will serve as moderator.

Senator Joe Benning is an attorney and 12-year veteran of the state Senate who has twice served as Minority Leader. David Zuckerman was Lieutenant Governor from 2017 to 2021 and served in the state legislature for almost 20 years.

Lieutenant Governor is the second-ranking officer of the executive branch with three primary responsibilities: presiding over the Senate casting tie-breaking votes when required, determining committee assignments for senators, and acting as governor when the governor is out of state, incapacitated, or acceding to the governorship in case of vacancy,

The event will also be live-streamed on Kingdom Access Television via YouTube. Information available at https://lwvofvt.org/event/lieutenant-governor-candidate-forum.

The Forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Vermont, Vermont Commission on Women, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Burlington Chapter, and St. Johnsbury Athenaeum. The League of Women Voters regularly sponsors candidate forums or debates as part of its mission of encouraging informed and active participation in government. Questions can be sent to league@lwvofvt.org.
