Because next month 16 attorneys general will be leaving office and will be making major career choices, I thought of my friend Bill Sorrell who served as Vermont’s Attorney General for nearly 20 years. Bill was elected nine times, led many state and national initiatives - mostly in the area of public health - and won numerous awards. He even has a lecture series named for him.
Deciding not to seek reelection in 2016, Bill did not forget the responsibility we all have to make our world a better place one person at a time. This article describing Bill's work at Mercy Connections in Burlington, Vt. says it all.
