WILMINGTON, VT   Southeast Vermont Transit (SEVT) recently appointed two new members to its Board of Directors.

Joel Bluming of Jamaica joined the Board in May, and in September Scott Tucker also joined. They replaced Tom Marsh and Eithne Eldred who served on the Connecticut River Transit and Deerfield Valley Transit Association Boards respectively. They became SEVT Board members when the companies merged in 2015.

Bluming is a member of the Windham Regional Planning Commission’s Transportation Advisory Council and is a strong advocate for public transit. Tucker is the Wilmington Town Manager and a longtime member of the Rutland Police Department.

“We are fortunate to have such a well-rounded and well-qualified Board of Directors” said Randy Schoonmaker, SEVT CEO. “Scott and Joel join our existing six other Board members who represent our 35-town territory extremely well.”

The other Board members are Chip Stearns of Springfield; Wendy Harrison of Brattleboro; Travis Wendel of Wilmington; Marco Tallini of Dover; Jon Meeks of Wardsboro; and Matt Mann of Brattleboro. The Board meets in two locations via video conferencing usually on the third Thursday of the month. The two locations are 45 Mill Street in Wilmington and 706 Rockingham Road in Rockingham.
