Progressive to Step Down from Burlington City Council 

Progressive Emma Mulvaney-Stanak (Ward 2) will step down from her seat on the 14-member Burlington City Council on December 15, the first-term councilor announced late today.

Mulvaney-Stanak, who has been renting in Ward 2, recently purchased a home in Ward 3. She'll occupy the home as of December 15, and according to the city charter will need to resign immediately.

She was elected to the two-year post in March, besting Democrat Nicole Pelletier by a 447-173 margin.  Her seat was previously held by longtime Progressive councilor Jane Knodell.

"The charter is really clear about residency requirements, as soon asyou move you're no longer on the council.There's no grace period, andno clause to even stay on to fill out your term," said Mulvaney-Stanak.
