MONTPELIER — Governor Phil Scott announced the appointment of Beth Quimby, a resident of Lyndon, to complete the term of Representative Charles Wilson following his resignation.

“Beth has a history of public service and involvement in her community and has the ability to hit the ground running for her constituents this session,” Governor Scott said. “I look forward to working with her to advocate for more fiscal responsibility and smart investments for our communities in Caledonia County, and all across the state.”

Quimby, a middle school math teacher at Barton Graded School for over 30 years, has worked with the Agency of Education to support the development and implementation of new tools and policy changes, including proficiency-based financial literacy standards. She has also served as an officer on the boards of three non-profit organizations: Victory Granby Holiday in the Hills Historical Preservation Group, Concord High School Alumni Association, and The Concord Historical Society.

“My family, especially my mother Connie, has a long history of service to others. I am honored to follow in their footsteps,” Quimby said. “I thank Governor Scott for this opportunity. I consider it a privilege to represent my fellow Vermonters.”

Quimby will be sworn in and seated in the House of Representatives in the coming week. In keeping with tradition, Governor Scott selected a replacement from the same party as the vacating legislator.
