Five Democrats and one secessionist all running for governor came to downtown Burlington this morning for a candidate forum on substance abuse. But it was a newly minted independent candidate, with a guitar-strumming sidekick, who stole the show.

Emily Peyton of Putney, one of five independent or minor party candidates on the ballot for November, made her debut appearance in northern Vermont during a two-hour debate at the Turning Point Center on Bank Street, a facility for substance abuse programs and group meetings.

Peyton, 51, a self-described "activist and a rebel" and mother of two, is making her first run for public office. She'll be making a "Magical Transformation Tour" across Vermont in a Winnebago this summer. (See her self-made introduction video above, taken from her website www.vermontforward.com)
