City election lost by UVM students

Voting day is over, and the results are in for Burlington’s mayoral and city council elections.

Miro Weinberger, the mayor of Burlington since 2012,  won a second term with 68 percent of votes.

A major portion of the UVM population resides in Ward 8 and will be represented by UVM graduate Adam Roof.

Sharon Foley Bushor, who ran unopposed, will be representing Ward 1, which also has a large student population.

East District, which encompasses both wards 1 and 8, will be represented by Selene Colburn, a lifetime Burlington resident and UVM librarian.

Both student candidates, senior Carmen Scoles, who ran for East District, and junior Brock Gibian, who ran for Ward 8, were defeated, according to the annual summary report of the election put out by the city.

Only 7,865 out of 31,195 of registered voters voted.
