Burlington is where Sanders began his political career, serving as mayor from 1981 to 1989, before going on to represent Vermont in the U.S. House and Senate.

“My hometown of Burlington and the people of Vermont have a special place in my heart,” Sanders said. “There is nowhere else in the world where I would hold an event this important.”

He continued:

There will be free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream at the kick-off. According to the Huffington Post, Jerry Greenfield, one half of the duo that created the Vermont-based ice cream company, hopes to personally scoop ice cream for Sanders at the event.

“I love Bernie’s take on the issues about inequality in this country, about the incredible discrepancy between wealth and poor, and that we’re just not taking care of people,” Greenfield reportedly said.
