Welcome!


I introduced the MINIMUM WAGE ORDINANCE in Richmond.
Workers will get their first raise in January.
The minimum wage will go up to $13 an hour by 2018 with a cost of living adjustment every year after that!

I sponsored our BAN-THE-BOX ORDINANCE to fight discrimination because of previous incarceration.
The ban covers city workers and contractors, provides pathways to productive lives.

I authored the RICHMOND MUNICIPAL ID PROGRAM
It brings security to Richmond's immigrant population with support from Chief Magnus.

I have spoken up for recognition of our LGBT residents.
We are stronger when we oppose discrimination in all its forms.

I advocated for CLEAN AIR and INVESTMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY.
We secured $90 million and significantly reduced emissions from the Chevron project.

I fought to keep DOCTORS MEDICAL CENTER open.
We continue to look for every possible way to save the hospital for our community.

I helped save KENNEDY HIGH SCHOOL.
I fought for and funded efforts to keep Kennedy High School open.

I fostered a progressive environment where companies can bring GOOD JOBS to Richmond and
UNEMPLOYMENT HAS GONE DOWN.

I accept NO corporate contributions.

I represent you and not the developers and special interests that seek to buy our elections.
All materials were produced by volunteers and paid for by individual grassroots contributions from Richmond residents like you!

 

I support Planning Commissioner Eduardo Martinez and Gayle McLaughlin (limited by City Charter to two consecutive terms as Mayor) for City Council.

Together we promote the theme “Richmond is Better Now; Let’s Build on a Decade of Progress.”

Team Richmond commits to continue and expand the remarkable transformation resulting from a decade of progressive policies spearheaded by Mayor Gayle.

We stand strong in support of Richmond’s youth, that they be healthy and safe, attend good schools, enjoy sufficient recreational and other positive character development activities, and that an ever expanding job market embrace their talents.

Team Richmond supports modernization of the Chevron Refinery so that the devastating explosion of August 6, 2012 never happens again.

We call for repairs and renovations soon to ensure community safety; jobs for Richmond residents; and a significant and measurable annual reduction of the pollution emitted from the refinery.

We want to continue the grassroots renaissance begun in Richmond with McLaughlin’s election to the City Council in 2004.

We focus on sustainable growth, community health, income equity, and clean energy. We follow the community’s lead in adopting bold and innovative solutions to chronic problems.

A New Generation of Leadership

Responsive; Resident-focused 

"Together, we have worked successfully on so many issues that we can truly say with pride,
'A better Richmond is happening!'”
