She's running.

Carina Driscoll, the stepdaughter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), on Monday announced she'll run for Burlington mayor. Driscoll, who said she'll run as an independent, will challenge incumbent Democrat Miro Weinberger, who's up for reelection in March. Another independent candidate, Infinite Culcleasure, announced on Friday that he'll run.
"Through this campaign, and then as mayor if elected, I will work to bring Burlington to again be that vibrant, forward-thinking city where we are
all so proud to live," Driscoll said in a press release. "It is time to bring our actions in Burlington back into line with our community values."

Driscoll told Seven Days last month that she was considering a run.

The lifelong Burlington resident, who described herself as a "civic leader and entrepreneur," previously served on the Burlington School Board, the city council and in the Vermont legislature. She currently runs the Vermont Woodworking School in Fairfax with her husband, Blake Ewoldsen.

The couple and their two children live in Burlington's South End.
