Rutland County Republicans nominated three candidates Thursday night for a vacant Vermont Senate seat to be filled by Gov. Phil Scott.

The appointee will replace Kevin Mullin, a Rutland Republican who spent 15 years as one of the county's three state senators. He resigned last month after Scott named him chair of the Green Mountain Care Board, which regulates Vermont's health-care industry.

According to Sen. Peg Flory (R-Rutland), who attended the meeting, the county committee voted to nominate three people: Tom DePoy, a Rutland City alderman and former state representative; Dave Soucy, general manager of Killington's Green Mountain National Golf Course; and Joshua Terenzini, a Rutland Town selectboard member and son of Rep. Tom Terenzini (R-Rutland).

Flory said she put Soucy's name into consideration for the post. She hailed his background in financial management and understanding of state issues.

Scott is expected to appoint Mullin's replacement before lawmakers return for a June 21 veto session. By tradition, the governor seeks nominees from the party of a departing lawmaker, but he is not bound by its recommendations.
