Burlington, VT – The Burlington Free Press today announced its endorsement of Kurt Wright as the next mayor of Burlington. The endorsement is another sign of momentum for Kurt’s campaign in this final week of the election.
Wright said of the endorsement, “I am thrilled to accept the endorsement of the Burlington Free Press. The challenges facing Burlington in the next three years require that our next mayor be experienced, well verse in city government, and committed to a more open and transparent city government. I will be that mayor. And our next mayor needs to be someone who can reach across party lines to bring all Burlingtonians together around a shared vision. I have proven that I have that ability throughout my career and in this campaign.”
In its endorsement the Burlington Free Press cited Kurt’s experience and knowledge of city government, as well as his ability to provide non-partisan leadership for the City as reasons why Kurt should be the next mayor of Burlington. In closing, the Burlington Free Press said,”What the city needs is true accountability. Kurt Wright offers the best promise for the kind of leadership Burlington needs today.”
