DeFelice gets Chair; Knight Vice-Chair

On Wednesday afternoon the new selectboard met and elected officers for the next year. Ken Parker was dismissed as chair, and vice-chair Alex DeFelice was elected chair, with Sonia Knight becoming vice-chair.

For Alex, a retiree who was a legend in Hartford High School football history, the sky is now the limit on his ability to wander around town getting involved. I predict this will create issues among town employees who will wonder whether they work for Alex or Hunter.

In a town-manager form of government, it’s vitally important that the selectboard deal with policy and leave the day to day management of town operations in the hands of the town manager. We’ll see how this all works out.
