Burlington, Vt. – Mayor Weinberger issued the following statement on the vandalism this morning to the Pride Center of Vermont:  
“I was very troubled and angered to learn about the vandalism at the Pride Center of Vermont this morning. Our City is using its full resources to investigate who committed this crime and why. Acts of hate have no place in Burlington.  
“Burlington must continue to be a safe and welcoming city for the LGBTQ+ community. In the wake of the murder of Fern Feather in Morristown and other troubling incidents, living up to this goal is more important than ever. I have spoken with Mike Bensel, the Executive Director of the Pride Center, to offer support and make clear that the City will remain committed to fighting hate and discrimination.”
