Town Manager's Office

Hello from Your New Town Manager


On May 1st I began my new role. I’m honored by the opportunity to serve the community along with Town staff and volunteers. I will continue to work with the Selectboard to accomplish the community goals identified in the Heritage project. We have been developing plans for many of these goals over the last four years.  As I have done as Colchester’s Deputy Town Manager and CFO, I will remain mindful of budgetary constraints and taxpayer impact as we move forward.

I look ahead with anticipation to meeting with citizens, members of Town boards and commissions, and Town staff over the coming months.  

Colchester is a diverse, civic-minded community that offers a mix of commercial, agricultural, recreational, and educational opportunities. The Town is home to approximately 17,200 citizens, covers 36 square miles and is enhanced by 27 miles of lake shore on Lake Champlain. Colchester is a beautiful, highly regarded, four season community noted for its:
  • Academic and research institutions
  • Diverse housing stock
  • Global and local businesses
  • K-12 educational system
  • Year round recreational activities
