Burlington Progressives just announced their process for nominating a candidate for Mayor of Burlington and I would like to invite you to participate in the nomination process! Over the next few weeks we will host a series of candidate forums focused on issues impacting our city. Then, on December 1st, we will hold our nominating caucus to choose the Progressive candidate for Mayor of our city. To vote in the caucus please register at progressiveparty.org/newdirectionbtv before December 1st.
Two candidates have already announced that they are seeking the Progressive nomination, Councilor Max Tracy and Councilor Brian Pine, so your vote and participation is really important. You can find out about the announced candidates at the link above.
