Vermont Candidates for Governor Discuss Health Care, Transportation

A video conversation with Christine Hallquist and Phil Scott

AARP asked the candidates for Vermont governor how they would keep retired Vermonters in the state, lower health care costs and improve access to transportation.

QUESTION 1: Americans aged 50 and older contribute more than $7 trillion to the US economy and in Vermont that amounts to more than $14.3 billion. What will you do to ensure that older consumers will want to remain in Vermont and to foster their continued economic contributions to the state’s economy?

QUESTION 2: What will you do to ensure health care coverage is adequate and affordable for Vermonters?

QUESTION 3:  Americans over 65 are the fastest-growing segment of the population in the U.S. and research shows that most want to remain in their homes and communities as they age.  Having access to safe walkable streets for people of all ages is an important part of that. What would you do to ensure that transportation options are safe, accessible, and user friendly ?  What are your views on “Vision Zero” policies that aim to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries?  Reforms might include lowering speed limits, improving intersection safety, increasing traffic law enforcement, and undertaking targeted public education efforts.
