Kitty Toll says she just can’t stay away. Not in times like these and not when her passion for public service remains high. The former multi-term representative from Danville who served as chair of the House Appropriations Committee before choosing not to seek re-election in 2020 wants back on the ballot – this time for the statewide office of lieutenant governor. When Toll announced in May 2020 that she wasn’t running for re-election to the Caledonia-Washington House District she brought to a close a 12-year run of legislating on behalf of the towns of Danville, Peacham and Cabot. In Toll’s six terms she was challenged only half the time. No one tried to beat her in 2012, 2014 or 2018.
