Castleton and Fair Haven state representatives Bill Canfield and Bob Helm gathered on the front porch of the palatial Marble Mansion Inn chatting with a couple of other people Saturday. It was a hot, sunny, lazy June afternoon and the occasion was a campaign visit from republican lieutenant governor and gubernatorial candidate Phil Scott.
Scott arrived 15 minutes later, shaking hands as he entered the mansion, which was air conditioned. Attendees milled around and chatted for a while. Scott was able to chat with everyone in attendance. Lunch was served. About 30 people were in attendance including several Rutland County representatives.
