BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The race for mayor of Burlington is heating up.

On Sunday incumbent Mayor Miro Weinberger was unanimously endorsed at the city’s Democratic caucus to seek a second three-year term as mayor of Vermont’s largest city.

Steve Goodkind, a Progressive and former director of the city’s Public Works Department, has his party’s endorsement to see the office on Town Meeting Day in March.

The Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1ARsOPD) reports that Weinberger says he wants to create jobs, make Burlington more affordable, find savings in city government, make city government more effective and ensure the city provides opportunities to all.

Goodkind, who launched his campaign last week, promised to be accessible to the public and he’d be more cautious of new development than Weinberger.
