Mayor Weinberger Statement in Advance of City Council Vote

Burlington, Vt. – Today, Mayor Miro Weinberger issued the following statement:  

“I have given input into and am in full support of the City Council resolution introduced by Councilor Magee, which has nearly unanimous support already from co-sponsoring City Councilors. I will be enthusiastically signing this resolution on passage and then our Administration will work hard to implement it. These anti-trans stickers are aimed at making members of our community feel unwelcome or unsafe, and are unacceptable, especially at a time of increasing, terrible anti-trans rhetoric, policy, and violence nationally and elsewhere in Vermont. The Administration will continue working with our community and the Council to make clear that Burlington loves and values our queer and trans community members. We are standing with the many Burlingtonians who through their actions and with their voices are creating belonging and safety for their LGBTQIA+ neighbors. That is the Burlington spirit I want people to see and know. Together, we will continue working to ensure that every person who lives in or visits our City feels safe and welcome.”
