The board of directors of The Charlotte News congratulates John Quinney on his appointment as interim president and publisher. John has been on the board for two years and has lived in Charlotte for 27 years with his wife, Colleen Armstrong. He has volunteered as Green Up Day coordinator and was on the town’s Conservation Commission and Energy Committee. Prior to his retirement in 2018, John was the General Manager at the Energy Co-op of Vermont. Over the years, he also worked at Green Mountain Energy, NativeEnergy, and the New Alchemy Institute.
The board also wishes to thank Claudia Marshall, who has resigned her positions as president and publisher of The Charlotte News. During her tenure, Claudia led us to:
- complete the most successful fundraising campaign in the paper’s history and to put the paper in a strong financial position,
- win a grant from a prominent national organization that recognized the paper’s impact on our community, and,
- solidify the paper’s role in providing an important public service to the Charlotte community.
We will miss her smart counsel and wish Claudia all the best in her new post as president of Charlotte Congregational Church.
