In 1981, we won our race for City Hall in Burlington by 10 votes. Just 10 votes. Don't let anyone tell you that you cannot make a difference when you get involved in the political process.
I won my race for mayor by 10 votes. We had to take on the entire Democratic establishment. But after a few years, Burlington, a sleepy political city, became one of the most politically conscious and progressive cities in America.
