Weinberger Names His Budget-Trimming Team 

Burlington Mayor Bob Kiss may still hold the keys to City Hall, but that’s not stopping Miro Weinberger, the Democratic candidate vying to succeed him, from planning his own mayoral transition.

Citing the quick turnaround between the March 6 election and the June 30 budget due date, Weinberger on Thursday named an eight-member panel that will conduct a "top to bottom" study of every city department and scheduled a "formal budget review" to take place the day after the election.

That is, of course, assuming he prevails at the ballot box.

At a City Hall press conference, Weinberger said he was "optimistic" his team could close a looming $700,000 budget gap without affecting police or fire services and without raising municipal taxes.
