Vermont Progressives Increase Representation on Burlington City Council

Source: Ballot Access News

Burlington, Vermont, held a partisan city election on March 5. Each of the seven wards elected a city council member. Progressives were elected in Wards Two and Three; Democrats in Wards Four, Five, Six, and Seven; and an independent was re-elected in Ward One.

Each ward has two city council members, and each member is elected for two years. The city holds elections every year. Because the Progressives also elected two city council members in 2012, there are now four Progressives on the council, up from three. The election also included one Libertarian and one Green, although they did not win. Here is a link to a news story.
