Gov. Phil Scott has appointed a realtor and lifelong Vermonter to replace former Rep. Ron Hubert, R-Milton, who resigned his position earlier this summer.

Chris Mattos, a senior financial specialist at the University of Vermont Medical Center and real estate agent at Century 21 Jack Associates, will fill the open Chittenden-10 district seat. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from UVM.

Mattos will serve as a Republican in the two-seat district alongside House Minority Leader Don Turner, R-Milton. In accordance with the tradition of picking someone from the same party, Scott chose Mattos from a list of names from the local Republican party.

“Chris is a lifelong Vermont and Milton resident and will represent his community well in the Legislature,” Scott said in a press release. “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.”

Mattos said in a press release: “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.
