City of Burlington, Vermont
Miro Weinberger has served the City of Burlington as mayor since March 2012 and, during his two terms, has focused on enhancing the quality of life for residents, fiscal stewardship of the City’s assets, innovation and economic development, addressing the City’s housing shortage, and 21st century policing. Under Mayor Weinberger’s leadership, the City has improved its financial status and has continued to be a hub for education, innovation, and the arts.
Highlights of his administration include the upgrade of the City’s credit rating by Moody’s Investors Service, which returned Burlington to an A credit rating, re-envisioning the City’s waterfront and making significant improvements to the Burlington Bike Path and other public infrastructure, passing multiple measures to increase downtown housing opportunities, and building the City’s senior management team with dynamic and effective leaders. The Mayor also announced a settlement agreement in the Burlington Telecom litigation in February 2014, putting the City on a path to resolving the financial troubles related to the municipally-owned telecommunications company which have plagued the City since 2009. Mayor Weinberger was reelected for a second three-year term with over 68% of the vote in March 2015.
Miro and his wife, Stacy Sherwat Weinberger, live in Burlington and are the proud parents of two daughters, Li Lin Bess Weinberger and Ada Champlain Weinberger.
