Independent

Incumbent Mayor Bernie Sanders, who had recently came in third in the 1986 Vermont gubernatorial election, announced on December 1, 1986, that he would seek reelection to a fourth term as Mayor of Burlington, Vermont, despite close associates stating that he was tired of being mayor.[2] Sanders stated that he would not seek another mayoral term after the 1987 election stating that "eight years is enough and I think it is time for new leadership, which does exist within the coalition, to come up".[3] During the campaign Sanders raised $37,480, spent $37,034, and had remaining debts of $2,020.[4]

Democratic

Caryl Stewart, who unsuccessfully sought a seat in the Burlington city council from the 3rd ward, and Paul Lafayette, who served as a member of the city council from the 5th ward, stated on August 24, 1986, that they were considering running for the Democratic mayoral nomination.[5] Stewart announced her mayoral campaign on September 16, and Lafayette announced his campaign on December 2.[6][7] Lafayette defeated Stewart for the Democratic nomination with 636 votes to Stewart's 240.[8]

Republican

Frederick Bailey, a member of the Burlington city council, was considered as a possible nominee for the Republicans, but later announced that he would not run.[5] The Republicans did not select a candidate to run in the mayoral election.[9]
