DERBY – Karen Jenne has officially announced her candidacy for Derby Town Clerk and Treasurer.
Jenne is a Derby Select Board member and will not seek re-election to the board at Town Meeting. She is ready for a change, is well-qualified, and many people have asked her to seek the position, she said. A special election was held for the town clerk in November, but Jenne said she wanted to finish her term on the board before going in a new direction.
Jenne is a lifelong Vermont resident with family roots in the area. She did move to New Hampshire for one year but did not take to the hustle and bustle of the city, she said. She moved back and wants to work hard for the place closest to her heart.
When talking about all the people who leave the area, she said, “If you stay, you can have a say in what happens.”
