"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - BARACK OBAMA, speech, Feb. 5, 2008

Join me, and many good friends, neighbors and supporters in a celebration of truth and good ideas. We need them both and badly in Richmond, and we need them soon.

My priorities will be to work on:
Preventing crime and violence with jobs, youth programs and public safety
Developing and diversifying our economy
with new green technologies and more support for small business
Defending Richmond’s health
with less toxic places and more open spaces
Building unity from our diversity,
embracing our differences and pulling together as one Richmond
Better utilization of City funds
to reduce the bureaucracy, expand services, and fix our streets.

Join our campaign!
