Legislative races preview: Washington County (Part 1)
Flint, 63, of Averill Street, is a “lifelong Progressive Democrat” and an elected member of Barre’s Board of Civil Authority.
Born in Washington D.C., Flint settled in Vermont 12 years ago and is the founder and director of the Barre Open Systems Institute (BOSI) and TechnoRubble.org.
Flint, who worked for 28 years as a consultant for the federal government and three years for the Vermont Department of Labor, is an independent technical consultant, security analyst, author, inventor and educator.
Flint once flirted with running for the City Council, mounting a last-minute write-in campaign that almost earned him the Ward 2 seat in 2009. Weeks later he declined to be nominated to fill the vacant seat at the Ward 2 caucus that was called for that purpose.
Flint said a Website that will include information about his candidacy – www.flint43.us – should be launched in the next few days.
