|Administrative Assistant to the Town Administrator
My name is Michael A. Walker and I am proud to be the first Town Administrator in Pownal. I have come to Pownal to settle for good; to enjoy all Vermont has to offer, and to do all I can to keep Vermont the beautiful and vibrant place it is long in to the future.
My role is to manage the day to day functions of government on behalf of the Select Board, and by extension, you as citizens. My role is non-political. I am responsible for developing programs, policies, budgets, and human resource management on behalf of the board, and to serve as an advisor to the Board. There are many other functions... too many to list here.
I hold a Master Degree with Distinction in Public Administration with an emphasis in government. I have studied organization of societies and governments and I am in awe of our founding fathers, who crafted a first of its kind Constitution by study and analysis of governments dating back to the beginning of recorded time.
As much as my role is to work for the Select Board, I am here for you as well. Let me know how we are doing. Let me know if you need any assistance, I will do all I can to resolve issues, and I look forward to seeing you all around town.
Michael A. Walker
