Meet The Candidates: Peter Galbraith

Angela Evancie
Peter Galbraith (pictured in 2014) is running for the Democratic nomination in Vermont's gubernatorial race. We're talking to him about what he sees as the biggest issues in the race.

Three Democrats and two Republicans are vying to represent their parties in November's gubernatorial elections. Here on VPR, we're having conversations with all five of those candidates.

We're speaking with Democratic candidate and former Windham County Senator Peter Galbraith about his proposals for the minimum wage, health care and more.

You can also read Peter Galbraith's Vermont Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) from Wednesday June 15.

Also on the program: A one-time Barre stonecutter was chosen to be the chief carver on Mount Rushmore. But for decades afterwards, his role was overlooked. Until recently. Douglas Gladstone, the author of a new book on the subject, explains who Luigi Del Bianco was: his work, the oversight and the new recognition.

And we kick off this year's Summer School series! VPR's Melody Bodette gets a lesson in archery from Melinda Laben of Hubbardton.

This program is broadcast live on Monday, June 20, 2016, at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
