The city of Winooski has seen its share of changes in recent years. Seth Leonard, current city councilor, is running for mayor of the town in March. He spoke with VPR about his plans for the city if elected.

The city of Winooski has certainly seen its share of changes over the decades. The old mill town has re-branded itself as a hip enclave with a vibrant restaurant scene, a growing technology sector and a diverse population.

But it also has its challenges, such as rapid growth and nearly a quarter of its residents living below the poverty line. All of this welcomes a new mayor come March.

Seth Leonard is one of the candidates running for the seat and is currently a member of the Winooski City Council. Leonard spoke with VPR about his plans for the city if elected.
