Matt Dunne's candidacy for governor of Vermont is drawing attention, in part because of his other job — as an executive with the Internet search giant Google.

The 40-year-old former legislator is head of community affairs for the California-based Google and works out of White River Junction. He says he wants to import Google's culture of being organizationally flat, fast and innovative into state government.

Dunne is one of five Democrats vying for a chance to face the expected Republican nominee, Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie, in the November election.

He says a key focus of his campaign is the goal of bringing broadband Internet access to every corner of Vermont.
