With your incredible support and volunteer help, I was elected mayor of Richmond on November 4, 2014, taking office January 13, 2015. I had previously served you on the City Council for nearly 20 years and I have served over 2 1/2 years as your mayor.
With all the votes counted, I received a total of 8,498 votes (51.34%) and Nat Bates received 5,743 votes (34.69%). That's a lead of more than 16.5%!
The Richmond election made national news because of the Chevron induced David and Goliath context and is the subject of a film documentary Nat Bates for Mayor. See some of the media coverage below:
It is time to start looking forward to the next election in 2018, and I solicit your support. Look for more information soon.
Mayor Tom Butt
