I'd like to extend my hearty congratulations to fellow RPA Steering Committee member Ada Recinos on her appointment to the Richmond City Council! She brings excellent qualities to this task, and I look forward to working with her. The RPA is thus maintaining its five votes on the council, offering many opportunities to put our values of people first over corporate interests into practice. For those of you who weren't able to attend the Sept.12 city council meeting, when all the applicants presented themselves and the council voted on filling the vacancy, it can be viewed online from the City's website. Below is the video of my presentation to the City Council.
To everyone who encouraged me to apply for the vacancy, thank you for your support. I urge us all now to keep our sleeves rolled up, continue building our movement and and keep working together in every way we can to promote our common progressive agenda.
