Letter to the Editor: Re-Election Candidacy Announcement from Barbara L'Heureux, Planning Board

The following is a Letter to the Editor: 

Dear Editor,

I am pleased to announce that I am running for re-election to Burlington’s Planning Board.  I have served on the Planning Board for five years. For the last two years, I have served as the Board Chair. I have worked diligently for the people of Burlington and I hope to continue this important work.  

I am a lifelong resident of Burlington. I grew up here and now am raising my own family here. I love this town and will work to preserve it as a wonderful place to live, work and play. 

Burlington is at a critical point in its development. Our thriving business community provides many benefits to residents but also presents challenges. It is the responsibility of the Planning Board to carefully evaluate each project to make sure that it is the best possible one for the Town. I believe strongly that our Town Bylaws must be applied evenly to all applicants without regard for power or influence. I treat all applicants cordially and with respect. 

I have never, and will never, accept donations from developers or their agents. 

I look forward to the opportunity to continue representing the people of Burlington. I respectfully ask for one of your two Planning Board votes on April 8th.

Barbara L’Heureux
