State of Vermont

Senate Chamber

Montpelier, Vermont

Joint Concurrent Senate Resolution

     By Senators Doyle, Cummings and Scott,

By Representatives Peltz of Woodbury and Smith of Morristown,

     S.C.R. 11.  Senate concurrent resolution honoring Marcia McGlynn for her public service on behalf of the town of Woodbury.

Whereas, the town of Woodbury is a small rural community of fewer than 1,000 residents located on the northern border of Washington County, and

Whereas, within the town are 26 lakes that have attracted many seasonal camps and an increasing year-round population, and

Whereas, since March 1987, Marcia McGlynn, a graduate of Spaulding High School and a Woodbury resident since 1979, has managed the town’s daily administrative affairs in the dual roles of town clerk and treasurer, and

Whereas, the citizens of Woodbury have appreciated her careful attention to the jobs’ responsibilities and her public-spirited dedication to the community’s well-being, and

Whereas, over the past two decades, Marcia McGlynn has seen the value of the town’s grand list increase significantly as the revenue derived from property taxes has nearly tripled from approximately $500,000.00 to roughly $1,500,000.00 annually, and

Whereas, reflecting the growth in demand for municipal services in Woodbury, she has been busy assisting with the preparations for a town bond vote this spring to fund an expansion of the town clerk’s office, including an expansion of the vault where records are stored and of the meeting space to accommodate larger crowds and to provide handicapped access, and 

Whereas, although much of the town’s record’s management system remains primarily on traditional paper record format, Marcia McGlynn envisions that a switch to increased computerization is not far away, and

Whereas, after 20 years of faithful service on behalf of the town of Woodbury, she has decided that the impending changes in municipal government mark an appropriate moment for her to pass on these positions of public trust to a successor who will be elected on March 6, Town Meeting Day, and

Whereas, Marcia McGlynn plans to remain involved in Woodbury’s municipal affairs by continuing in the role of tax collector, and

Whereas, with the reduced work schedule, she hopes to spend more time with her family and pursue her hobbies, including reading and soap-making, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly honors Marcia McGlynn for her public service on behalf of the town of Woodbury, and be it further

Resolved:  That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Marcia McGlynn in Woodbury.
