Amidst much to be proud of in our city, we are faced with serious challenges. I am running for Mayor because I have never been more optimistic that we can overcome our challenges than I am at this very minute. I know it, I feel it in my heart and being, and I am fired up and ready to take them on at this pivotal time in our city’s history.
My parents raised me to never run from who I am - to claim it, to celebrate it. Burlington is who I am. Burlington is my home, my family. And whether you’ve been here four months, four years, or four generations, as your mayor - as your first woman mayor - I will go to bat for you every day.
I look forward to hearing from you in the days and weeks ahead. And I very much hope to earn your support at the Burlington Democratic Nominating Caucus
on December 10.
