Seth Leonard, a Winooski resident for four years, was elected the city’s mayor today, beating defense attorney Bill Norful 627-408, according to preliminary results.
Leonard, 32, campaigned as a uniter who could bring together Winooski’s diverse groups — young professionals, refugees and families who have called the Onion City home for generations. An Indiana native, Leonard moved to Winooski in 2011. He served on the city council for the past two years, and said he helped to stabilize the city’s finances while in office.
Leonard said he had spent more than 12 hours outside today at the polls today greeting voters.
