RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - State police are seeking information about protesters who blocked the driveway of the Randolph home of the Vermont official who oversees the state’s energy policies.

Police Public Service Department Commissioner Christopher Recchia called police about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday to report there were about 11 protesters outside his home.
