DANA SWEET RETIRES FROM SELECTBOARD
It was with great reluctance that the Cambridge Selectboard accepted a letter of retirement, dated and effective March 3, 2021, from Dana Sweet at our meeting last evening. Dana was elected to the selectboard in 1989 and has served his community with great dedication and heart for 32 years. He provided the board with a wealth of institutional knowledge as well as a strong understanding of the town’s physical infrastructure. Under Dana’s tenure, the town replaced its entire infrastructure including the Town Garage, Town Hall, rescue building, and added a new fire station. Dana’s fiscal attention ensured that the town remained on solid financial ground.
Dana will be sorely missed and we don’t intend to let him go without the necessary fanfare. We are hopeful that we will soon be able to gather together and celebrate this iconic member of our town.
Per 24 V.S.A. § 963, the selectboard will be embarking on the process to address this vacancy. More information on that process will be forthcoming.
