    Gov. Peter Shumlin has appointed Eldred French to fill a state Senate seat from Rutland County.

    The governor announced the appointment Friday morning.

    French, a Democrat from Shrewsbury, will fill a seat vacated when Bill Carris announced last month he was stepping down from his state Senate seat from Rutland County for health reasons.

    French is former state representative who lost his seat last year after redistricting pitted him against a fellow incumbent for re-election.
