At Uncommon Grounds on Burlington's Church Street Marketplace on Tuesday afternoon. There he was, the Democrat who gave Republican Brian Dubie a scare in Vermont's recent Lite-Gov race.
State Sen. Matt Dunne told yours truly he's "caught up on my sleep," and "made up significant childcare credits with my wife."
What's he got planned for the future?
"I'm exploring a variety of options," said Dunne.
Good answer, eh?
He did say he felt his "service politics" approach was a success and we may be seeing more of it down the line.
Certainly Young Dunne, with one statewide race under his belt, will be in the mix in 2008, right?
As the Rutland Herald editorial page put it:
"The defeat of Matt Dunne for lieutenant governor was a disappointment to many Democrats who saw him as a bright young leader with an abundance of energy and new ideas. One hopes that Dunne finds another avenue to bring his enthusiasm and ideas to Vermonters."
