What a great victory for the people of Richmond on Tuesday!
See the election results here:
Team Richmond (me, Jovanka Beckles and Eduardo Martinez) won the 4-year City Council seats.
In addition, Tom Butt won the Mayor's seat and Jael Myrick won the 2-year City Council seat.
A profound thank you to the hundreds of Team Richmond volunteers for your hard work and dedication. Together we overcame 3 million dollars plus of corporate money!
My heartfelt appreciation to the Richmond voters who made it clear that our democracy cannot be bought!
This historic election marks the culmination of a decade of hard work by so many in our grassroots movement.

What an awesome accomplishment we have achieved together!
So proud and honored to be part of our ongoing transformation.
