Lisa Kendall is our Town Clerk (9 yrs of service)  She can answer questions about town land, birth, death and marriage records or answer questions about local taxes, licensing your dog, or other pertinent functions of life in Strafford. Most meeting notices are also posted at this office.

Vermont law entrusts the Town Clerk with an extraordinary list of duties, ranging from recording, preserving and certifying public documents to administering oaths of office, working with the listers on tax appeals, presiding over the local elections, issuing marriage licenses, and licensing animals. Town Clerks are also ex-officio notaries public and record all proceedings of town meetings.

The Town Clerk is elected at Town Meeting for a three-year term. Strafford has an Assistant Town Clerk, Regina Gioia (8 yrs of service), appointed by the Town Clerk. The Town Clerk is an independent official, responsible to the voters.
