Hillary Weeks was elected to the position of Inspector of Election in Ward 3 with a total of 344 votes out of a total of 462 ballots cast making her the 1st Green elected in the history of Burlington and the 1st female Green elected in the history of Vermont.
It was cold, frigid day, with temps never getting above the 8 mark. I was out at Ward 5/Burlington Electric Department helping out René Kaczka-Vallière and the Burlington Green Party table.
The preliminry results are here.
The balance of power [on City Council] is now: 3 Republicans, 2 Independents, 4 Progressives, and 5 Democrats.
Charity has an earlier report, where I'm pictured and mentioned.
The ballot item for another 9/11 investigation lost citywide by a 2/1 margin.
