The Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity (formerly known as the ALANA Community Organization) sent questions about race, diversity and hate crimes to all the candidates running for governor in Vermont this year.
Since the topic is race – these are questions that one might not usually hear asked of Vermont's candidates for higher office.
What I found more interesting, however, were the campaigns that did NOT respond to the questions.
Those were: Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie, Democrats Sen. Peter Shumlin and Sen. Susan Bartlett and independent candidate Cris Ericson.
You can read the answers from the candidates who did respond in the PDF below.
