Coleman not seeking reelection, J.J.Minor interested in seat

From Mark Robinson at Richmond Magazine:

“I just really feel strongly that Richmond is heading in the right direction. I want to be apart of that, but I don’t think being a school board member is going to be the best opportunity to do that based on my stage in life,” [Don] Coleman said. “I believe overall as a board, as a team, we’ve done a great job to get us to this point.”

[…]

At least one person who is [interested in the School Board position is]
James “JJ” Minor said in an interview Monday he was strongly considering a bid for the seat. Minor, an alumnus of Armstrong High School, is the son of Del. Delores McQuinn. He currently works in City Hall and serves as the chairman of the city’s Democratic Committee, the local wing of the Democratic party.

I think Donald Coleman did a great job on the School Board. He has an excellent temperament as Chairman. This will be a loss for RPS.
