MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont lawmakers are set to meet in joint assembly to elect a Statehouse sergeant-at-arms, three trustees to the University of Vermont and the adjutant general of the Vermont National Guard.

The votes take place in the first year of each legislative term, and this year’s elections are garnering more interest than some in the past have.

That’s because five lawmakers are vying for the three seats up this year on the UVM board, and because Sergeant-at-Arms Francis Brooks, who has held the post since 2007, is facing two challengers.

Janet Miller, director of operations for the Legislative Council, the Legislature’s legal research and bill drafting staff, is seeking the job as sergeant-at-arms, as is Chuck Satterfield. He’s a Northfield police detective and husband of former Sergeant-at-Arms Kathy Satterfield.
