'Burlington is not for sale' - Artist Frank Hewitt created this poster for Bernie Sanders' first campaign for mayor in 1981, when one of the big issues was how to redevelop the waterfront. Sanders favored creation of public space over selling the entire area to a private developer, so Hewitt chose that theme for his poster. Sanders squeaked to victory by 10 votes, defeating the Democratic incumbent.
