The man chosen to oversee recovery efforts after Tropical Storm Irene was active in Vermont politics not long ago.
Neale Lunderville took on a number of roles in the administration of Republican Governor Jim Douglas, and now he’s been chosen by the current Democratic Governor-Peter Shumlin-to bring his expertise to bear on a major rebuilding challenge .
Part of that experience includes service as Douglas’ Administration and Transportation Secretary, and most recently he’s been working for Green Mountain Power, and has taken an unpaid 4-month leave of absence to help the state get back on its feet after Irene.
Neale Lunderville tells VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb about the first steps to storm recovery.
