An email addressed to the “Citizens of Richmond” and about recent reports of possible shenanigans regarding the upcoming City Council 7th District seat appointment urges folks to sign a petition requesting that council appoint “a bonafide resident of the district” to the soon-to-be-vacant position:
People need to be made aware that Henry Marsh and Delores McQuinn are asking City Council members to appoint a person to the vacant 7th District seat they have moved in from out of the 7th District. The only conclusion one can draw is that they expect this person to support their political agenda better than anyone they can find who actually lives in the district.
This arrogant political power play cannot be allowed to proceed uncontested. Please send a message to anyone you know asking them to sign the petition at:
which asks the City Council to respect the principles of self government by appointed a bonafide resident of the district they are supposed to represent.
