MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Democratic Vermont gubernatorial candidate Matt Dunne says he’s left his job with tech giant Google to focus on the 2016 campaign.

Dunne had worked for eight years as head of community affairs for the California-based Google, operating out of an office in White River Junction, Vermont.

Dunne says his job has entailed working with state and local governments on infrastructure investments, bringing high-speed Internet to rural areas, affordable housing initiatives and a program to teach low-income girls how to write computer code.

Dunne says he left Google on Monday.

He faces a primary campaign against former legislator and state Transportation Secretary Sue Minter. Lt. Gov. Phil Scott and retired businessman Bruce Lisman are running on the Republican side.
