Mayor Miro Weinberger Responds to Death of Robert “Bobby” Miller

 

Burlington, VT – In response to the passing of Robert “Bobby” Miller, Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement:

"With the passing of Bobby Miller, Burlington has lost one of the pillars of our business, civic, and philanthropic communities. I first got to know Bobby when I served with him on the Airport Commission for many years, and got to see first-hand his service and dedication to Burlington. Bobby was a hard and diligent worker, and when you needed to reach him, you knew you could find him at the Dunkin' Donuts on Williston Road at 5:00 am. Bobby leaves behind him a tremendous impact on Burlington, and his legacy will endure in the form of better healthcare for Vermonters at the University of Vermont Medical Center, improved facilities for kids at the King Street Center, a gathering space for Burlingtonians at the Robert Miller Community and Recreation Center in the New North End, and many other achievements, not least of which are the number of properties that he built and rehabilitated throughout the state and the economic development that he sparked along with them. My thoughts go out to Holly and the Miller family today, and I know that Bobby's incredible personal story, dedication to his community, and ceaseless generosity will continue to inspire many."
