Don is a True Public Servant

During my 16 years in the Legislature, I’ve run into politicians of all stripes. But I’ve only happened across a handful of true public servants--those dedicated to putting their constituents above all else. Don Turner is one of those rare public servants. From the House of Representatives to the Milton Fire and Rescue Department to Milton Town Manager, Don lives and breathes public service. And while the current Lieutenant Governor has certainly been in Montpelier for a very long time, Don’s record of experience brings the viewpoint of not only lawmaker, but a first responder too.

House minority leader to run for lieutenant governor

House Minority Leader Don Turner had planned to leave his seat in the Legislature this year. Now, he’s eyeing a return to Montpelier only this time in a new office. Turner, a Milton Republican, confirmed Wednesday afternoon that he will run for lieutenant governor. “With the big divide going on in the state, you know, within our party and with the governor I felt it was important to step up,” Turner said. At a time when legislative leadership and the governor’s office are on opposite sides of the aisle, Turner said he sees potential for the lieutenant governor to be a bridge between the two. “I wanted to bring balance to the Statehouse and I think that the lieutenant governor’s role can do that,” he said.
