Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott today announced the appointment of Chris Mattos as Representative for the Chittenden-10 district serving the Town of Milton. Mattos will serve alongside House Minority Leader Don Turner. Mattos, a resident of Milton, was appointed to fill the seat vacated by former Representative Ron Hubert (R), who recently stepped down from his seat in the Vermont Legislature.
“Chris is a life-long Vermont and Milton resident and will represent his community well in the legislature,” Scott said. “As a graduate of UVM with a background in financial services and business planning, Chris will bring good perspective and experience to the legislature as we work together to grow the Vermont economy.”
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve the residents of Milton and look forward to working with my fellow legislators and Governor Scott,” Mattos said. “As a real estate agent, I have witnessed firsthand the difficulty for people to obtain a house at a price they can afford, which is fundamental to our quality of life. I look forward to working on economic development and other issues in Montpelier this winter.”
And like the governor himself, Mattos occasionally races stock cars.
Mattos is a senior financial specialist at the University of Vermont Medical Center and a real estate agent at Century 21 Jack Associates. Mattos graduated from University of Vermont in 2011 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.
Typically the governor will fill an open seat with a member of the same political party.
