Congratulations to Vinay Pimple, who was appointed to the vacant seat on the Richmond City Council on February 24, 2015.
I appreciate the support many of you expressed for my candidacy. It was clear that three of the current council members shared that support and three did not, so I am glad to see that the stalemate has been broken and we can avoid a special election.
Vinay is clearly a person with strong principles and compassion, and I look forward to working with him and all of our elected officials in addressing the many challenges we still face in Richmond.
You’ll continue to see me actively advocating for the people of Richmond, especially the most vulnerable, in many venues: on the Planning Commission, in the Richmond Progressive Alliance, the Richmond Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Richmond Co-op Loans, and more.
Together, let’s keep improving the health and well-being of everyone in our city!
