On February 23, 2021, Ethel Pike was nominated and then temporarily appointed by the Vershire Selectboard to fill the vacancy on the board until the election on April 6, 2021. Ethel’s term will run approximately six weeks. The vacancy was created when Marc McKee stepped down from the board on February 16 due to health and other personal reasons. Ethel is not interested in running for, or staying in, the position beyond the April 6 election. Currently, Tonya Gunn and Ken Bushey are running for the three year position that Sarah McRae Thrasher is stepping out of (not running this year) and Nicole White-Fogarty is running for the 2-year position vacated by Marc McKee.
For personal reasons, Marc McKee has asked the Vershire Selectboard to accept his resignation as of February 16, 2021. The board is set to discuss the vacancy and to possibly appoint an interim member at its next meeting (February 23, 2021) to serve until the next election (via Australian ballot, April 6, 2021).
