Pro-Refugee Mayor of Rutland, VT Humiliated in Stunning Re-Election Bid Defeat

“Five-term incumbent Mayor Chris Louras of Rutland, Vermont was defeated this Town Meeting Day. He lost to Alderman Dave Allaire by a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent. Allaire swept all four wards,” WCAX reported Tuesday night.

“Louras had beaten Allaire in two previous mayoral elections,” Seven Days Vermont reported.

It was not even close on Tuesday, as Louras (pictured) was crushed in a humiliating defeat that was as much a rejection of his personal character as it was of his pro-refugee policies.

Louras made headlines last year when it was reported that, beginning in 2015, he secretively attempted to resettle 100 Syrian refugees in the small Vermont city he has served as mayor since 2007.

“Mayor Christopher Louras has unveiled a plan, developed in near-secrecy, to resettle 100 Syrian refugees who fled the onslaught of the Islamic State and are exiled in sprawling Jordanian camps,” the Boston Globe reported in May.
