Democrats in Vermont's largest city have nominated incumbent Mayor Miro Weinberger to serve another term.

On Sunday about 500 city Democrats participated in a virtual caucus in which they nominated Weinberger to run for what would be his fourth term in office.  Burlington party Vice Chair C.D. Mattison offered the formal nomination.  “Miro has dedicated himself to the people of Burlington and delivered building a financially strong and nimble city. A Burlington ready to respond to the pandemic.”

Weinberger faces Progressive City Councilor Max Tracy and Independent City Councilor Ali Dieng.

Voting is on Town Meeting Day March 2nd.
