support Planning Commissioner
Eduardo Martinez and Gayle McLaughlin (limited by City
Charter to two consecutive terms as Mayor) for City Council.
Together we promote the theme “Richmond is Better
Now; Let’s Build on a Decade of Progress.”
Richmond commits to continue and expand the remarkable
transformation resulting from a decade of progressive
policies spearheaded by Mayor Gayle. We stand strong
in support of Richmond’s youth, that they be healthy
and safe, attend good schools, enjoy sufficient recreational
and other positive character development activities,
and that an ever expanding job market embrace their talents.
Team Richmond supports modernization
of the Chevron Refinery so that the devastating explosion
of August 6, 2012 never happens again. We call for repairs
and renovations soon to ensure community safety; jobs
for Richmond residents; and a significant and measurable
annual reduction of the pollution emitted from the refinery.
We want to continue the grassroots
renaissance begun in Richmond with McLaughlin’s
election to the City Council in 2004. We focus on sustainable
growth, community health, income equity, and clean energy.
We follow the community’s lead in adopting bold
and innovative solutions to chronic problems.
A New Generation of Leadership
we have worked successfully on so many issues that we can
truly say with pride,
better Richmond is happening!'”
