Vermont voters will choose local races in communities across the state on Town Meeting Day, March 3rd.  In Burlington, several candidates have already announced their plans to run for mayor. Two people are seeking the Progressive Party nomination.  Ward 3 City Councilor Brian Pine officially announced his campaign earlier this month, while City Council President Max Tracy is also seeking the Progressive nod. Tracy tells WAMC North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley the city of Burlington needs to move in a different direction.

The Burlington city council is going to consider asking voters in Vermont's largest city whether marijuana should be legalized and taxed.

Progressive Councilor Max Tracy says he is planning to ask the council next week to consider adding the non-binding referendum to the city's ballot in November.

He says the idea is not an endorsement of marijuana use nor a call for legislative action. Rather, he says it's a way to survey the opinion of voters on the issue.
