Rutland Mayor Loses Reelection Bid Over Refugee Plan

A Mayor in Vermont lost reelection over his plan to bring Syrian refugees to the city. We are hoping this will become a trend in local elections in every state.

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.

A Rutland native, Louras reached out to refugee resettlement officials in late 2015 and hatched a proposal to bring 100 refugees from Syria and Iraq to the city, which has been losing population for decades. The mayor pitched the plan, without consulting the Board of Aldermen, as a humanitarian imperative and economic development initiative.

The former Mayor never considered a population growth program for Vermont residents. Instead he looked to the Middle East. There are four million beleaguered South African farmers who are being pushed off of their land and sent to settlement camps.

Opponents criticized Louras, 56, and Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program officials for their secretive planning. Some critics engaged in nativist rhetoric, and questioned whether refugees would carry diseases or try to bring Sharia law.
