The 2018 municipal election seems like so long ago.
The election took place in October, six months ago, however, the city of Burlington has just released the election financial reports.
“As part of the municipal election process, every candidate must submit their campaign financial information,” reads a recent blog post on Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward’s website.
The blog post continued to explain that the deadline to file financial statements just recently passed, March 29, 2019.
