NEWPORT, VT - Ed Stanak (Progressive) has spent the last 40 years of his life as a grassroots organizer and advocate working for labor, with environmental groups and against nuclear power. Now he is taking on Bill Sorrell and Jack McMullen in a race for Vermont Attorney General.
Stank's chances may seem like a long shot, but he's used to long shots, he says. He's made a career out of fighting for the underdog.
Stanak believes the Vermont Attorney General's Office (AG's office) should be more pro-active than re-active in legal cases.
