From the RTD article:
Richmond City Councilwoman Delores L. McQuinn concluded her tenure in City Hall last night before she crosses East Broad Street to work in the General Assembly.
“I hope that I’ve been instrumental in helping to change the city of Richmond and my district,” the longtime 7th District councilwoman said.
McQuinn’s colleagues and residents praised her leadership on Richmond’s slave trail and Slavery Reconciliation Statue projects, as well as its annual back-to-school rally and parade.
McQuinn was appointed to the council in 1999 and re-elected five times, including in November to a four-year term. She also served six years on the city School Board.
