The January 12 debate between three Burlington Mayoral Candidates was an informative event with a number of humorous moments.
225 residents turned out to ask questions about sidewalks, passenger rail, bus service, cycling and the Champlain Parkway. Thank you to our event co-host AARP and the sponsors Burlington Free Press, CarShare Vermont, UVM Transportation Research Center and Good News Garage. Read the Free Press coverage here.
Thanks to avid walker Mike Townsend from the BFP for moderating. Jennifer Wallace-Brodeur joined me on stage to ask the audience questions. Local Motion Board MemberLisa Aultman-Hall gave a great opening speech about Local Motion’s growing range of innovative initiatives. This debate was the first candidate forum Local Motion has hosted.
There are a number of upcoming debates and events — make sure you continue the questions about transportation and livability.
