For 48 years, Vt Sen. Bill Doyle has participated in the ebb and flow of Vermont politics from inside the Legislature and from his classroom at Johnson State College. He notes proudly that about 50 of his former students have run for elective office. Doyle, who is now 90, is one of the longest serving state legislators in the US. He has served under seven different governors. Sen. Doyle narrowly lost his re-election in Nov. 2016.
In this Vermont Conversation, Sen. Doyle talks about the high points of his career, his advice to others considering running, and says he is considering running again in 2018. (December 28, 2016 broadcast)
