Mayor Miro Weinberger Response to Steve Goodkind’s Inaccurate Claim of “Pretty Good” Financial Management during his Time at DPW
Goodkind’s DPW Financial Mismanagement 
Contributed to City’s Three-Step Credit Rating Downgrade

Burlington – This morning during the first mayoral debate on WVMT’s “Charlie, Ernie, and Lisa Show,” former Burlington Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Steve Goodkind addressed his financial management abilities by saying: “I think we ran a pretty good Department over the years, and we tried to balance our budget.”

He indicated that there would be no consequence for this action, predicting that “after the dust settles” we wouldn't need to pay back any of the money the City has accepted and used over the last 15 years.

Mayor Miro Weinberger statement: 


“Steve Goodkind’s first substantive proposal of the campaign is a major policy reversal, a bad idea, and a BT-like financial error all in one.
