Republican Don Turner represents Milton in the Vermont legislature, and now the House Minority Leader is running for Lieutenant Governor in the Nov. 6 general election. We're talking to the candidate about why he's seeking the state's second-highest office.

The 54-year-old lifelong Milton resident has been in Vermont's House of Representatives since 2006, and House Minority Leader since 2011. He's served on committees focused on corrections, education, housing and commerce and economic development.

Don Turner joins Vermont Edition to discuss how he would work with the state legislature and the governor as the state's second-in-command, what he would seek to accomplish as lieutenant governor and his approach to budgeting, taxes and education spending.
