Mayor Who?

Posted By on Tue, Dec 11, 2007 at 8:22 AM


Who's the mayor of Burlington, Vermont?

Mayors come and go, folks, but the mayor's secretary doesn't change, at least she hasn't changed in the last 20 years.

Faye Lawes started behind the big desk as mayoral gatekeeper in Vermont's largest city back in 1987 when that socialist guy with the Brooklyn accent and the frequent press conferences was in the job.

And she's still the gatekeeper for the current occupant of the corner office at Church & Main - whatshisname? The quiet guy?

Stopped in for a chat with Big Bad Bob yesterday.

Interesting fellow. Loves the job.

More in the "Inside Track" on Wednesday.
