Bill Sorrell has been elected to seven consecutive terms as Vermont's Attorney General. This summer he faced his toughest campaign yet in a primary battle for the Democratic nomination. Now Sorrell, Republican Jack McMullen and Progressive Ed Stanak are vying for the role as Vermont's top law enforcement officer. VPR's Mitch Wertieb talks with Sorrell about some of the high-profile controversies in the AG's office, including how police shooting and Taser deployments are reviewed and a federal lawsuit over the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.
Also in the program, a new book of photos and stories captures the essence of Townshend. Photographer Carl Decker worked on the project for a decade, and shares the results with VPR's Jane Lindholm.
