We’re coming into the home stretch here, folks. Tuesday Burlingtonians choose their new mayor.
Here’s a round-up of some great mayoral race coverage from the alternative media set.
Burlington’s premier local politics blogger, Haik Bedrosian of Burlington Pol, did a fantastic job this election season bringing us interviews with each of the Burlington Mayoral candidates.
