The longest-serving attorney general in Vermont history says he won’t seek reelection in 2016.
Bill Sorrell, who has won reelection nine times since being appointed to the office by then-Gov. Howard Dean in 1997, announced Monday afternoon that this term will be his last.
“I had plans to have this be my last term for pretty close to five years now actually,” Sorrell said in a telephone interview Monday afternoon. “Now I’m just ready for a different chapter. I don’t know what that’s going to be, but I feel good.”
