He was greeted as he stepped off Air Force One by Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Burlington Mayor Bob Kiss and Burlington Mayor-elect Miro Weinberger.

The president then made his way over to the small crowd, shook hands and was heard remarking that he was in the company of a former, current and future mayor of Burlington.

Sanders was mayor of Burlington for eight years prior to winning a seat in the U.S. House, and later the Senate.

After Obama leaves Vermont he’s headed to Portland.
