MIDDLEBURY - Gov. Jim Douglas was clearly pleased during the swearing-in ceremony of David R. Fenster as Addison County State's Attorney Nov. 17 at the Addison County Courthouse. Fenster replaced John T. Quinn who retired in September.
"I believe David's 11 years in the Bennington State's Attorney's office as well as his years in private practice give him the experience necessary to keep Addison County a safe place to live and raise a family," said Douglas.
"I want to thank Gov. Douglas for having the confidence in me to do this important job," said Fenster. "I am committed to working as hard as I can with my partners in the law enforcement community to ensure that the people of Addison County are safe."
Fenster has served the state and his community as a member of the board of managers for the Vermont Bar Association, the board of governors of the Vermont Association for Justice, past president of the Bennington Bar Association. He also serves as secretary of Norshaft Little League and is a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
