State Rep. Peg Flory is moving to the state Senate.
Gov. Jim Douglas on Monday appointed the Pittsford lawmaker to succeed state Sen. Hull Maynard, who retired last month.
Flory, a lawyer, served on the House Judiciary Committee in Montpelier for two years. She will assume Maynard’s seat when the Legislature convenes its 2010 session Jan. 5. Flory is a Republican, as is Maynard.
Pittsford leaders will meet in the coming weeks to nominate a successor for Flory in the state House of Representatives.
