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.
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.
RAD members also endorsed several other candidates running for office in March. They are:
- Max Tracy, Ward 2 City Council, Progressive
- Martine Gulick, Ward 4 School Board
- Jesse Warren, Ward 5 City Council, Progressive
- Charles Simpson, Ward 6 City Council, Progressive
- Ali Dieng, Ward 7 City Council, Progressive-Democrat
- Monika Ivancic, Ward 7 School Board
- Carter Neubieser, Ward 8 City Council, Progressive
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.
