Building on Success

Together we made it happen!

Dear Friends:

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 more than 3 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:
National:
MSNBC
NPR
Esquire Magazine
Bill Moyers
Al Jazeera America

Local:

SF Chronicle

It is time to start looking forward to the next election in 2018, and I solicit your support. Look for more information soon.
