Mayoral candidate Carina Driscoll responds to Mayor Weinberger saying 'we aren't selling Burlington'

Mon, 01/08/2018 - 12:45pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Carina Driscoll, Independent Candidate for Mayor of Burlington, issued the following statement following Mayor Weinberger's speech on Sunday: "What couldn’t be further from the truth is the Mayor’s statement that 'we aren’t selling Burlington.' The Mayor requested proposals, as recently as last month, essentially putting Memorial Auditorium on the market; inked a deal to sell a city lot to a developer for a hotel; made plans for a private marina on our public waterfront; and ensured Burlington Telecom will no longer have any meaningful local control. The Mayor’s highest bidder approach offloads our city’s assets and will not serve Burlington well in the long run. It can’t continue. It’s time for our city to have a Mayor who will return power to the people of Burlington, not concentrate it in City Hall."
