Last nights election was not what I wanted but only losing by 328 is incredible for my first time running for Richmond City Council. Disappointing that only 10% of eligible voters cast their vote. Thank you to everyone that voted for me. My heart is so full by the incredible support I have received. I would like to thank the amazing team of volunteers who supported me. Your relentless work and dedication to building a more progressive city has been so inspiring.
Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about the vision for change we need in Richmond, took a lawn sign, and donated. Having spoken to many of you over the course of this campaign, I am inspired that we can make Richmond a city where everyone feels they belong. I met so many voters that were voting for their first time. Many never felt their voice mattered before.
I won’t stop fighting either. I will continue with my letter writing to City Council and presenting on issues that matter. My top priority is to keep advocating to get an anti-racism policy created. Join me in the fight to make Richmond a more equitable, just, and sustainable city for everyone. This is just the beginning for me, onwards!
Congratulations to Andy Hobbs and for all the candidates that put their name forward.
