In Referendum on Refugees, Rutland Mayor Loses Reelection Bid

Rutland Mayor Chris Louras, who endured months of withering criticism for his plan to bring Syrian refugees to the city, lost his reelection bid on Tuesday.

In unofficial voting results, David Allaire, a city alderman and leading critic of the resettlement, trounced Louras, a 10-year mayoral incumbent, by a 776-vote margin, according to results cited by the Rutland Herald and WCAX-TV.

"I'm simply wishing him luck and I'm moving on," Louras told Seven Days Tuesday night. He declined further comment, saying he would "not hazard a guess" as to what the election results say about Rutland's support for refugees.

Allaire did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

1. Not "hazarding a guess" as to why they lose appears to be endemic to Democratic politicians and...

... Democratic voters, and may they hold to that path! As a well-wisher said to the man in the electric chair, "Well, more power to you."...

3. Maybe dems really don't want to win

They pick issue after issue, that a significant majority of folks oppose. Use any bathroom you want, etc.

Lost all 4 US special elections, but they won a school board race in AZ, be happy I guess.
