Governor Shumlin appoints Kilgore to Washington County Probate Court
Governor Peter Shumlin swore in Jeffrey Kilgore this morning as probate judge to replace George Belcher for the Probate Division of the Washington Unit of the Superior Court.

He has been an adjunct professor at Vermont Law School, an Associate Professor of Business and Economics at Norwich University, and Special Counsel to the Department of Public Service.

He graduated from Vermont Law School in 1978. He also received an LLM degree in taxation from Boston University School of Law in 1988 and a Master’s degree in economics from Michigan State University in 1975.
The swearing in took place at the Washington Superior Court in Montpelier.
