On the heels of a petition essentially calling for the appointment of a representative with a history of residing in the 7th District, another anonymous petition has surfaced which offers support for potential appointee Cynthia Newbille.
To: Citizens of Richmond, Virginia
We are asking for your support to ensure that Cynthia Newbille is allowed to represent the 7th district on Richmond, Virginia’s City Council. We are asking for your support in advocating to appoint Mrs. Newbille to fill the recently vacated 7th District City Council seat. Mrs. Newbille is currently the acting director of the East End Family Resource Center. She was not only raised in the 7th District attending Whitcomb Elementary (closed), Mosby Middle School (now Martin Luther King Middle School) and Armstrong High School (31st street) but is also a product of the East End District, and has served her community for the last 13 years. Mrs. Newbille stands everyday as a pillar of our community.
Mrs. Newbille’s areas of service have been health, youth development, education, housing, family services and economic development. She holds a Master’s Degree in Psychology from SUNY. Her work, community accomplishments and collaborative ways of civic engagement have impacted the East End District in a positive way. Mrs. Newbille has facilitated dynamic partnerships within the public and private sector coordinating and interfacing with City departments and agencies, elected officials, community leaders and members, faith based organizations and universities for the enhancement of the 7th District.
The densely populated 7th District contains the most eastern parts of Richmond it is bounded to the north, east and somewhat to the south by Henrico County. Neighborhoods in the 7th include: Fairfield, Church Hill, Fulton Bottom, Fulton Hill, Montrose Heights and the eastern portion of Shockoe Bottom.
With the election of Barack Obama, we as a people are in need of representatives whose first priority is service to the people. We know from our experience that Mrs. Newbille is committed to community, the Commonwealth and our Country. Her primary focus is health from a holistic approach which includes physical health, environmental health, economic health and social well-being. Cynthia Newbille will work collaboratively and not in isolation tapping into our city’s collective resources to build a better Richmond.
