Incumbent City Council President Kathy Graziano if facing a challenger in Johnny Walker in the 4th District. The Times-Dispatch invited candidates for Richmond City Council and School Board to tell us why they’re running. They will publish their statements – in no particular order – on the Op/Ed page between now and Election Day. Candidate Rich Savage has an editorial up in yesterday’s paper.
The challenges I have outlined are not insignificant, but neither are they insurmountable. In the eight years that I have had the privilege to serve the citizens of the 4th District as well as all the residents of the city, we have made great strides. I have no doubt we can continue that progress — and we must. My husband and I raised four children in Richmond, and now we watch as they raise our grandchildren. Creating the greatest possible quality of life for our grandchildren and for all the children of Richmond has been and will continue to be my No. 1 priority as the 4th District representative on City Council.
