After much encouragement and serious deliberations with my family, I am proud to announce my candidacy for the Burlington Board of Selectmen,” said Kennedy Constant. “We need to preserve the quality of life while keeping it affordable. I will be the pro-taxpayer Selectmen who will hold the line against higher property taxes.”
