Building on Success

Together we made it happen!

Dear Friends,

On January 10, 2023, I completed 27 years and two months of public service, including eight years as elected mayor, on the Richmond City Council. I am now termed out and retiring from politics after becoming the longest continuously serving City Council member in Richmond history. See What Will You Do Now, and a Mayor's Accomplishments and Regrets, November 5, 2022.

Even though I am leaving active political life, I will keep the E-FORUM going for at least a little while and maintain this site as probably the best archive available for City of Richmond political issues over the past 22 years.
