Please see my statement to the
Redistricting Commission below. Obviously, splitting
Richmond is not a good idea. We've worked hard to
bring people together city-wide and keeping that
effort going foward is extremely important.
Although I am not taking a position regarding
in which district Richmond is placed, I strongly
object to dividing Richmond and strongly support
redrawing the lines in a way that keeps Richmond
Community ties run deep in Richmond.
One of our themes for ongoing community development
is: One Richmond!
I thank you for your attention
to our concerns and look foward to a redrawing
of the lines.
