Rights & Democracy Endorses Candidates for Burlington City Council, School Board - Rights & Democracy VT

Rights & Democracy Endorses in Burlington Elections

The results are in!

Thanks to the dozens of Rights & Democracy (RAD) members who took the time to vote last week in our second round of Burlington endorsements for candidates running for office on Town Meeting Day.

In late December, members elected to endorse Independent Carina Driscoll for Mayor and also ratified our Burlington People’s Platform.

Last week members weighed in on a number of City Council and School Board races. Here are the results:

  • In the contested Ward 3 City Council race, RAD members voted to endorse Progressive Brian Pine over Independent James Lockridge and Democrat Lizzie Haskell. Pine won with 81% of the vote. Lockridge earned 19% of the vote. Haskell did not receive any votes.
  • In the contested Ward 5 School Board race, RAD members voted to endorse Nicole Twohig over Mike Fisher by a 67-33% vote.

Congratulations to the candidates (we’ve linked to their campaign pages so you can check them out). And, special thanks to the member leaders of RAD’s Movement Politics Team , especially Burlington leaders Laura Mistretta and Grant Taylor who interviewed all of the candidates, and were supported by members Dustin Tanner and Alison Nihart.
