Vermont’s Town Meeting Day is one week away. A number of candidates are running for the four open seats on the Burlington City Council. In the city’s North District, the incumbent unexpectedly withdrew in January, resulting in two independents and a Democrat vying for the seat. Ericka Bundy Redic is one of the independent candidates. She tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley she is running to sharpen the council’s focus on economic development.
“We don’t have a problem wanting things. We have a lot of things we want to spend money on. But there aren’t a lot of people talking about how to make the money so that we can spend the money and so that was my big reason.”
Ericka Bundy Redic faces Democrat Franklin Paulino and Independent Kienan Christianson in the Town Meeting Day vote March 5th. Interviews with other city council candidates are at wamc.org
