Abstract (Document Summary)

The result could have "a pretty significant impact nationwide," anti-IRV activist John Ewing said; or it was a local question that left many voters indifferent -- the perspective of City Council President Bill Keogh, D-Ward 5, who said voters were far more interested in Burlington Telecom than in IRV as he campaigned for re-election. The five other ballot items passed in Burlington: * Question 1, The proposed school budget of $51.9 million, passed with just under 60 percent of the vote. * Question 2, authorization of a revenue bond of up to $21.5 million to expand the parking garage at the airport, passed with 77 percent of the vote. * Question 3, a general obligation bond of up to $1.325 million to buy new fire trucks and refurbish one, passed with nearly 78 percent of the vote.\n
