Beth Pearce, an incumbent Democrat, seeks another two-year term as state treasurer in the Nov. 6 election.

Vermont State Treasurer Beth Pearce was appointed to the job in late 2010, and has been re-elected three times on the Democratic ticket. In all, she's spent more than 40 years working in government finance.

An incumbent Democrat, Pearce spoke with Vermont Edition about why she wants another two-year term. 

Pearce's Republican challenger, Richard Morton, declined both an interview and a debate on the issues facing the state treasurer, stating: "I have chosen not to campaign to the degree that these activities require."
