MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov.-elect Phil Scott hasn’t taken office yet, but already is making clear his hope of serving more than one term.

Meeting with reporters on Monday, the Republican talked about the challenge of finding people to run state agencies and departments that is presented by the two-year term for governors in Vermont.

Scott said he’s had strong interest from a qualified applicant pool for administration jobs, and that a number of agency executives from the administration of incumbent Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin had applied to stay in their jobs.

He said he expects to have most if not all agency and department head jobs filled before he takes the oath of office Jan. 5.
