Democratic gubernatorial candidates pledge to push renewable energy, support land conservation and shut down Yankee in 2012

Shumlin says he’ll announce candidacy Nov. 16

Editor’s note: Five Democratic candidates for governor answered questions about conservation, the Current Use program and renewable energy as part of a gubernatorial candidates’ forum at the Environmental Action conference at Vermont Technical College in Randolph on Nov. 7, 2009. Eight to nine minute video clips follow of remarks by Shumlin, Sec. of State Deb Markowitz, Patrick Parenteau standing in for Sen. Doug Racine, former Sen. Matt Dunne, and Sen. Susan Bartlett. Lieutenant governor Brian Dubie, a Republican, was not present at the forum. The videos are in the order in which the candidates appeared.
