Another bit of evidence that the scramble is on among politicians seeking office in 2010.
Lawyer Chris Roy, a Republican from Williston
who is "exploring" a run for secretary of state, has announced that Barre Mayor Thomas Lauzon
will be treasurer for his exploratory committee.
Roy grew up in Barre and he and Lauzon go way back. As a first-time candidate for statewide office it would be important for Roy to have a network of support outside Chittenden
County where he now lives.
By the way, Roy has been raising a lot of questions about instant run-off voting in chats out there in ether land. Extending IRV might well be an issue in the next secretary of state's race even if the Legislature were to make some decision in the interim -- don't you think?
