Louras Says Rutland Looking At Long Game

Print More

In local elections yesterday, four of Vermont’s cities picked their top elected officials.

It wasn’t a race in Winooski or Newport where mayors Mike O’Brien and Paul Monette were running unopposed.

In Vergennes, William Benton defeated former city mayor April Jin.

And in Rutland there was a close race for mayor. City Alderman David Allaire challenged the incumbent Christoper Louras.

But in the end Louras prevailed, with a 400 plus vote margin of victory. Mayor Louras speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.
