Former Mayor Moves Overseas - Burlington Hill Section Home on the Market!

It is with mixed reactions that I post this blog about my parents moving overseas and selling the home they have owned and lived in for the last 25 years.  The Seven Days article titled "A Former Mayor's New Direction" details Peter Clavelle and Betsy Ferries' move to Albania.

Now, at age 62, Clavelle has moved to Albania. He has a five-year contract to oversee a local governance project in the eastern European country. Albania is about the same size as Vermont, but has a population that is five times larger....

Interviewed in the kitchen of her home on South Union Street, Ferries confesses that it isnt easy to leave Burlington behind. Three of the couples four children Luke, 27; Will, 23; and Awil, 20 live in the Queen City, while Jae, 24, works for an international development company in San Francisco. Ferries and Clavelle are the legal guardians of Awil, a refugee from Somalia whos set to graduate in June from Burlington High School.
