Governor's Council

In Crown colonies and dependencies of Great Britain, a body assisting the governor in an executive or legislative capacity, or in both. This survives in some of the United States, as in Massachusetts and Maine, in the advisory body called the Governor's Council. Though called Council, the position in Vermont was the same as Governor's Council in other states and was part of the Executive Branch of the Government.
