Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on the Death of Dan Balón

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the sudden and untimely death of Dan Balón and offer condolences to his wife and daughters on behalf of the City of Burlington.  Dan will be missed by all those he touched through his tireless efforts to make our City an even better place.  Dan’s leadership on and commitment to the issues of diversity and inclusion – through his work with the Burlington School District, the ‘We All Belong program,’ and as a Fletcher Free Library Commissioner – will have a lasting impact on our community.  We honor Dan’s advocacy to create a more equitable community.  We will miss Dan’s conviction, sense of humor, and the kind and calm manner with which he approached his work.”
