Senator Sanders stopped by Walker Automotive in Montpelier to discuss the Miles Automotive electric cars they sell. The staff drove the Senator around the lot and answered his questions about technology, practicality, cost and interest in these vehicles. Electric cars should be part of the solution to the challenges of global warming and our dependence on foreign oil. Our public policies must reflect these priorities.
