Social media and technology have created many opportunities to connect with more people across the city and the country, and different generations who have not always been engaged in politics in traditional ways.
I am often inspired by the creativity, innovation, energy and entrepreneurship of young people who are starting businesses, launching their careers and inspiring younger generations. You are an integral part of our community. We are laying the foundation for future generations to build upon and we need your input.
I want to hear more from the young people of Burlington, the so-called “Millennials” who live, work, study and contribute to our community.
Here are some of the biggest issues that the city and City Council are dealing with, but we do not often hear from young people. What do you think?
