Despite being new on Vermont’s political scene, 28-year-old Democrat Brandon Riker has already raised more than $100,000 for his campaign for lieutenant governor.  He began thinking about running for office in January when the Shumlin administration pulled back its universal health proposal and committed to the race in May.  Riker tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley that he decided to run for lieutenant governor because it’s an office with great potential.

Campaign finance reports were due at the Vermont Secretary of State’s office Wednesday. While many candidates have yet to gear up for the 2016 campaign — which features a rare open gubernatorial seat — there a few are aggressively fundraising for the state’s top offices.

The housing market continues to stabilize nationwide and in the most populous county in western Massachusetts real estate sales showed modest gains over the last 12 months, according to a report released today.

The total amount of money spent on real estate in Hampden County in the last 12 months was more than $1.32 billion as average home sale prices rose in the cities of Springfield, Chicopee, Holyoke and Westfield, according to the fiscal year 2015 report from Register of Deeds Donald Ashe.
