Vt. governor to reimburse for use of plane


The campaign of Governor Peter Shumlin has agreed to reimburse Vermont for the cost of a flight on the state’s airplane that delivered him to a campaign rally in September. Shumlin had made other flights on state business Sept. 27 before he asked to be flown to Middlebury, rather than to the plane’s home base at the Berlin airport outside Montpelier. He had a campaign fund-raiser in Lincoln. The Agency of Transportation valued the cost of the Lyndonville-to-Middlebury leg at $65.80. Susan Allen, Shumlin’s deputy chief of staff, said Tuesday that the administration requested reimbursement from the campaign ‘‘to err on the side of caution.”
