SOUTH BURLINGTON -- Republican gubernatorial front-runner Scott Milne will host a Tele-Town Hall Meeting Thursday evening at 7:30, engaging voters from around Vermont in an interactive telephone discussion.
"I said in my campaign kick-off speech that I will always listen before I act," said Milne. "This Town Hall Meeting is a part of my making good on that promise. I'm looking forward to having a candid conversation with Vermonters about how we make our state a more affordable and accommodating place to live, work and raise a family."
The meeting will be moderated by Elise and Keith Milne, children of Scott Milne.
The format of the event involves calls to 30,000 registered voters inviting them to stay on the line as the event begins. Scott Milne will introduce himself and outline his campaign priorities and instruct callers on how to ask questions.
Voters interested in asking questions will then be connected to campaign staff to sort through the issues and queue up the calls. Voters will then get to ask their questions to Scott Milne and be heard by all the callers in the meeting.
"Vermonters deserve transparent leaders willing to listen to their concerns rather than politicians who spend more time out-of-state raising money for partisan campaigns than they do solving the problems we face here at home," said Milne.
The event will last approximately an hour.
