On August 14, 2017 the East Montpelier Selectboard appointed Rosie Laquerre, a former EMES board member and WCSU employee, as the town’s first Selectboard-appointed clerk under the governance charter amendments approved at 2017 Town Meeting. Ms. Laquerre’s first day in the office will be September 5, 2017.
The board thanks the Town Clerk Selection Committee, led by Chair Karen Saudek, for its excellent service in the nearly-three month process to find Rosie. The committee’s job was to solicit and evaluate the applicants, and then recommend qualified candidates for the Selectboard to consider.
The board would especially like to thank CJ Flynn, the current Interim Town Clerk through September 1, 2017, for his gracious acceptance of the two-month interim position after his elected office was eliminated by the charter change. Good luck in your future endeavors, CJ!
