I am writing to endorse Ali Dieng for mayor of Burlington. I have known Ali for about eight years. In that time, Ali has shown his true passion and dedication to our community. Ali knows our community inside and out. His energy is inspiring. He recognizes that our city’s diversity is an asset. He will work to make Burlington more equitable for all. He is a great listener, understands the unique needs of our city, and is a force of positive change for Burlington. I am so excited to vote for him in the election.
