Weinberger Sworn In As Burlington Mayor

Print More

Miro Weinberger is officially Burlington’s new mayor.

The Democrat was sworn into office Monday night, as crowds cheered.

It’s the first time in more than 30 years that a Democrat has taken the helm of City Hall politics.

The election of independent Bernie Sanders in 1981 was followed by a progressive streak with one single-term Republican.

The Burlington Free Press reports that with little support from his party, two-term Progressive Mayor Bob Kiss decided not to run again.

Weinberger beat Republican Kurt Wright and independent Wanda Hines in the March election.
