Candidates sought for Addison-Rutland House seat
MONTPELIER — Gov. Phil Scott is seeking candidates from the Addison-Rutland legislative district to fill the Vermont House of Representatives seat being vacated by Rep. Alyson Eastman, I-Orwell.
Eastman, who won re-election to her second term unopposed last fall, was appointed by Gov. Scott to be deputy secretary of the Agency of Agriculture.
“I am looking for someone who, like Alyson, will be a dedicated public servant and representative for the people of Shoreham, Orwell, Benson and Whiting,” said Gov. Scott in a press release.
“In addition, I hope to keep with tradition by appointing someone of the same political affiliation as the previous representative. Because Alyson served as an Independent, this is an opportunity for someone to bring a similar, fiscally conservative and commonsense perspective to Montpelier,” Scott added.
Candidates must be a full-time resident of Shoreham, Orwell, Benson or Whiting.
Interested parties should submit a resume and statement of interest highlighting the perspective they will bring to the post to Rachel Feldman, Senior Director of Boards Commissions and Public Service.
Applications must be received no later than close of business Wednesday, Jan. 18. Gov. Scott hopes to fill the vacancy by the end of the month.
Submit resume and statement of interest to: Rachel Feldman, Senior Director of Boards, Commissions and Public Service, 109 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05609 or email [email protected].
