New exec director at Vermont workers' union
BURLINGTON (AP) - The legislative director for the union representing Vermont state workers has been named its executive director.
Steve Howard is replacing Mark Mitchell at the 5,400-member Vermont State Employees' Association. Mitchell has resigned to move to Florida.
The Burlington Free Press reports the 42-year-old Howard of Montpelier says he would continue the work Mitchell did to grow membership and mobilize members at their work sites.
