Board of Trustees

The Essex Junction Trustees is the governing, legislative body for the Municipality of the Village of Essex Junction. The five-member board is elected at large within the Village. After each Annual Meeting, one of the Trustees is elected by the other Trustees to the office of Village President.  The Village President is the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees and presides at the Trustee meetings. The three-year terms of the Trustees are staggered to provide continuity.

Board Members & Contact Information

Andrew P. Brown, Village President abrown@ 802-598-8162
George A. Tyler, Vice President gtyler@ 802-310-8215

The Village Trustees welcome your questions, concerns and suggestions.  Please feel free to contact any Trustee at the email or phone number listed on this page.

Please be aware that the Trustees are not able to respond to emails as a group.  If you send an email to all five Trustees, it is mostly likely you will receive a response from only one Trustee.  This is because there are laws that prevent elected officials from conducting business outside of a public meeting.  Responding to a group email is an example of this.

If you wish to discuss a concern with the entire Board of Trustees, the best way to do this is either to contact the Village Manager to have your concern placed on an upcoming meeting agenda, or to attend a Board of Trustees meeting and address the Board at the beginning of the meeting.

To put an item on a Board agenda, call the Village office at 878-6951 and speak to either Tammy Getchell or Unified Manager Evan Teich.  To speak to the Board of Trustees at a meeting, be there when the meeting starts (usually at 6:30 p.m.)  Immediately after the Pledge of Allegiance, the Village President will ask the audience if anyone wants to speak about something that isn't on the agenda.  That's when you can bring up your concern.
