Progressive gubernatorial candidate Anthony Pollina is stepping up his criticism of incumbent Jim Douglas.
Pollina is planning a Statehouse news conference today to take Douglas to task for what he says are “false promises” and the high cost of living in Vermont.
He says Douglas has built a reputation as someone who keeps taxes down, but he says Douglas’ proposed budget increases fees for poor families and gives tax cuts to the rich.
Pollina’s still the only candidate to declare against Douglas.
He’s planning a news conference today at the Statehouse.
