MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Members of the Vermont State Employees' Association have elected a union official as the association's president for a 2-year term.
Shelley Martin is a 13-year veteran of state government who works for the Department of Environmental Conservation in Montpelier and has served four years as first vice president of the VSEA.
Martin also has served in several other roles with the union, including on its legislative, member recruitment, special events and personnel committees.
She says her goals include enhancing empowerment of workers at their state worksites and organizing Vermont workers who don't currently have a union but would like to.
Previous president John Reese did not run for another term.
