DUMMERSTON—Several opportunities to get involved in Dummerston’s municipal government are coming up this Town Meeting Day.
“At the top of the list, Pam McFadden will not be running for re-election to the Town Clerk’s position,” Selectboard Chair Zeke Goodband told The Commons. The Town Clerk is a 30-hour-per-week position with pay and benefits.
The Town Treasurer position will also be open come Town Meeting Day. Laurie Frechette is not seeking re-election. This is a paid, 15-hour-per-week job.
Two seats are opening on the Selectboard: a three-year term and a two-year term.
In addition, Goodband said, “I don’t have information for the Listers at this time but there is at least one opening for a Library Trustee."
To be considered for any of these positions, interested parties must go to the Town Office and pick up a petition form, then collect 17 signatures from registered Dummerston voters to get their name on the ballot for Town Meeting Day on March 1.
“Their petition needs to be turned back in to the Town Office later in January, usually around the third week,” Goodband said, adding, “If someone had questions or wanted more information they could contact the Town Office or call or email any Selectboard member."
