Burlington may not have an actual mayor, but the town does have many people who help make the community great.
We at Burlington Patch thought one of those people should be acknowledged as the Unofficial Mayor of Burlington. Who should it be? That's where you come in. We are asking readers to make suggestions for who you think should be honored with the role of Unofficial Mayor.
The Unofficial Mayor could be someone who volunteers their time, a member of the business community, a teacher or educator or anyone who is involved in the community. You know who makes this community great and we want to hear about them!
We do have two rules. First, anyone who is a current office holder cannot become the Unofficial Mayor. This means no members of the Board of Selectmen, Ways & Means or Planning Board, for example, nor can the Town Administrator, Town Clerk, Treasurer, etc. cannot be nominated. Members of un-elected volunteer boards and Town Meeting members can be nominated.
Secondly, our most important rule is to keep it positive. After we get nominations we are going to ask people to vote and comment why they think their candidate should be elected. We ask readers to offer any positive thoughts on their nominee but to refrain from posting anything negative about any of the other candidates. Any negative comments will be deleted.
So, with that said, who do you think should be Burlington's Unofficial Mayor? Let us know your nominations in the comments section below
