Middlebury board vacancy draws three
MIDDLEBURY — Three Middlebury residents have thus far submitted letters of interest to fill a vacancy on the town selectboard created by last month’s resignation of Selectman Travis Forbes.
Middlebury Town Manager Kathleen Ramsay said on Friday, Aug. 22, that she had received letters from Donna Donahue, a National Bank of Middlebury employee who is also running for the Vermont House, and former selectboard candidates Brian Bauer and Heather Seeley. Ramsay said she had also received a verbal inquiry from former selectboard candidate Eric Murray.
Forbes resigned unexpectedly on July 29, citing mounting personal and professional time commitments and frustration over what he indicated was his inability to affect operations at the Middlebury Department of Public Works. The board is now looking for someone to fill Forbes’ spot until Town Meeting Day next March, at which time the remaining year on Forbes’ position will be up for grabs.
Ramsay said applicants have until the board’s next meeting — Tuesday, Aug. 26, at 7 p.m. — to submit letters of interest. The board at that meeting will confirm the pool of candidates and vote on its choice at its next meeting, Sept. 9.
