Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement about Leopold’s Breach of Fiduciary Duty

“Jonathan Leopold's statement that the past Administration ‘did the right thing’ by inappropriately and secretly spending millions of dollars of taxpayer money is both shocking and wrong.  The Court yesterday ruled decisively that Leopold breached his fiduciary duty to the City, committing a serious violation of law.  Nothing excuses the former Administration's failure to be transparent with the public, the Council, and regulators or its failure to follow the law.  Fortunately, the people of Burlington know better, and the City will continue moving down a different path.”
