Joan Shannon – South District
I live in Lakeside with my husband, Ken Grillo, my daughter, Julia, and two rescue dogs. I am so grateful to live in Burlington and enjoy walking and biking to many local events, and frequently, meetings. Thank you for electing me to the City Council for 8 terms.
Richard Deane – East District
Grateful for the opportunities Burlington has offered him and his family, Richard’s goal in running is to assure that those opportunities are available to others in Burlington – both current and future residents. He believes that making housing more accessible and affordable is critical to this bright future.
Franklin Paulino – North District
If elected, I will continue building on what Dave Hartnett has already accomplished for the New North End. In my personal and professional life, I have been a dedicated public servant for more than 9 years and intend to use my specialized background as a Deputy State’s Attorney to make public safety a priority along with a focus on mental health counseling and substance abuse treatment.
