Neighborhood advocate Tatnall steps into mayoral contest

February 20, 2016 3:40 pm by

Mark Robinson at Richmond Magazine has word that Rick Tatnall will seek to be an official candidate for mayor (bringing the current candidate count to four):

Church Hill resident Rick Tatnall said in an interview Thursday morning that he is seeking the office. Tatnall, 58, is a well-known advocate for cleaning up the James River and other environmentally friendly initiatives. He recently lobbied to keep minor league baseball on the Boulevard as the city solicits input on how best to redevelop the publicly owned land that’s home to the Diamond.

Tatnall has never held elected office. He ran for mayor in 2012, but dropped out after he realized his candidacy jeopardized his advocacy projects. This time around, he says, he can’t sit on the sidelines.
