Richmond’s testy City Council Race

leave a comment »

Amidst all the attention given to the statewide candidates for office, I have somewhat neglected a race for an open Council Seat in the City of Richmond.

The seat came open with Del. Delores McQuinn resigned after winning the vacated seat of Mayor Dwight Jones.  There has been quite a bit of controversy over the McQuinn’s replacement and it has left 6 different candidate fighting it out for the opportunity to represent Church Hill.

Thankfully, even though I haven’t given the race it’s proper attention, our crack Richmond reporter Rachel DePompa is all over it. Here is her dispatch from Decision Richmond:
