Burlington mayor looking for local businesses that innovated and adapted during pandemic

Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward is asking for your help in selecting the recipient of a special award.

Part of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Excellence Awards, the focus of this year Mayor’s Award is a business that exemplified resilience, change, innovation and creativity.

“The Mayor’s awards have evolved many times over the years, often focusing on philanthropy, community engagement, and sustainability,” said Meed Ward.

“This year, the Chamber has asked me to select a business that has exemplified some of the characteristics we have come to appreciate more than ever before in the past year.”

The major said we have all seen businesses in Burlington pivot and adapt in ways they never expected so that they could meet the evolving needs of our community amidst the limitations and obstacles of a global pandemic.

They changed their product and service assortments. They moved their businesses online. They did curbside pickups and front porch drop offs. They found virtual ways to connect with customers. They kept their employees and customers safe.

“This year, I invite you to send me your nominations and share with me what business impressed you most in the past year. Simply tell me the name and address of the business and how you saw them display resilience, change, innovation and creativity.”

Nominations for the June 28 awards ceremony can be emailed to [email protected] by 11:59 p.m. on April 18.

“I look forward to our community’s input helping me spotlight an amazing local business this year.”
