Illuzzi Launches Campaign for Vermont Auditor

Longtime Vermont state Sen. Vincent Illuzzi says he'll rely on relationships with state officials and knowledge of state government to do an effective job if elected Vermont auditor of accounts.

Illuzzi, a Republican who has represented Orleans and Essex counties in the Senate, kicked off his campaign on Wednesday at the Barre Granite Museum, which is housed in the building where his father worked as a granite sculptor.

Illuzzi said he would focus on whether state funds were spent as directed by the Legislature, were they used efficiently and effectively, and did the expenditures serve the people they were intended to serve.

He faces Burlington Democrat Doug Hoffer in the race for auditor.
