“Sally Fox represented Chittenden County both as a fierce and dedicated member of the Vermont legislature and a passionate lobbyist in Montpelier for more than thirty years. She was beloved and admired by all who witnessed her relentless drive to help and protect those who struggled to make their voices heard.
In January 2014, she passed away from cancer, and on Friday, January 29, her memory was honored with the dedication of the Sally Fox Conference Center at the new State Office Complex in Waterbury. The center will house the Agency of Human Services—fitting, many noted, as the place where her work to assist the poor and disadvantaged will continue for years to come.
Fox’s husband, current Chittenden County Senator Michael Sirotkin, joined 400 others at the dedication, which featured moving speeches, fond memories of Fox, and the dedication of a painting by her favorite artist, Katharine Monstream. The conference center is in a new building at the state offices in Waterbury, which stands next to older facilities that were recently renovated after being severely damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011.”
