Monkton seeks candidates for selectboard vacancy
MONKTON — The town of Monkton is looking for a new selectboard member.
Rodger Parker, whose work schedule was making it difficult to attend selectboard meetings, resigned Nov. 7. Parker was first elected to the board in 2013. His current term, begun in 2016, expires next spring.
“With the March election fast approaching I feel it prudent to resign from my position and let others who will have time to perform the task properly move into my selectboard position,” he wrote in his resignation letter. “It was a great experience for nearly six years and I hope you all will continue to take careful consideration of the townspeople’s concerns.”
Monkton’s selectboard was expanded in 2008 from three to five members, and the town has sometimes found it challenging to fill the occasional seat, said board chair Stephen Pilcher.
One person has expressed an interest in Parker’s seat, Pilcher confirmed.
Interested residents should send a letter of interest to Town Clerk, P.O. Box 12, Monkton, VT 05469 or email [email protected] by noon on Nov. 26.
