@6, really? and that would be a vote for whom? The towpath, which is currently used for….. what? Or a vote against the amphitheater, which seems like a pretty useful thing in a town that seems to like music?

I am leaning towards Jack Berry.

Baliles knows the system and has been solid on City Council.

Not a CEO

Not a CEO

@Bill Chapman; no, the mayor is not akin to CEO. There is a CAO appointed by mayor and that individual is more akin to a CEO position, so it really isn’t directly comparable. The Mayor establishes priorities, sets vision, selects an administration, creates special commissions, etc. Baliles has worked as a staff level employee within the City and also has been on city council. Thus he knows the inner workings, players and dysfunctions of the City. That is one of the biggest issues that needs to be tackled; having someone fix the myriad broken systems, not one who promises shiny… Read more »

Baliles. He believes in public input and is rational, ethical, knows the city and has a real stake in the city’s future. I don’t know everyone running, but of the ones “with a chance” at it, he’s the one I trust. You can probably weed out the other contenders just by testing them against the 5 items I listed. No one else can meet all 5.

I find the format of the survey questions to be somewhat subjective perhaps even manipulative in design 2 secure a certain result for certain candidates. What is clear cut and obvious however is it that the next Mayor of Richmond has to not only have a business mind (not necessarily being a CEO) but be able to bring people together. They must know the moving parts, they must be strong enough to make decisions and be honest, they must have a certain amount of institutional knowledge yet at the same time have an open mind to move the city forward.… Read more »
