The ACLU of Vermont's mayor questionnaire is intended to help voters make an informed decision in the election. As the only candidate to respond to this year's survey, Emma offers voters clarity on her positions on key topics like criminal law reform, housing, harm reduction, and police accountability.
From the ACLU of Vermont:
In December, the ACLU invited mayoral candidates Emma Mulvaney-Stanak and Joan Shannon to answer questions about their positions on criminal law reform, housing, harm reduction, and police accountability—all issues that have repeatedly been named as priorities for the Burlington community in 2024.
ACLU of Vermont Executive Director James Lyall: “The next mayor of Vermont’s largest city can help build a community where everyone can thrive by centering the basic needs and dignity of all residents. For all the divisive and misleading rhetoric of recent years, the people of Burlington have long expressed their desire to invest in people, not prisons; they deserve a mayor who will advance effective solutions aligned with their shared values of compassion and respect for all people. We hope this survey will help voters make informed decisions on election day.”
