BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The newly appointed director of Racial Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging for Burlington will go before the City Council on Monday for approval.

Last week, Mayor Miro Weinberger, D-Burlington, announced he had chosen Kim Carson to take over the department.

Carson called her appointment a great honor and responsibility she doesn’t take lightly.

Weinberger created the REIB department in 2019.

Carson comes most recently from Iowa, where she served as the Director of Education and Human Capital Development for the Iowa Judicial Branch.
