What We Have Heard 

Our first round of public engagement in September and October focused on obtaining the community’s input on the vision for the future of Richmond and the big ideas to achieve this vision which will be used to develop the vision and goals for Richmond 300. We read all 6,000+ big ideas and almost 1,000 vision statements and summarized them in the revised Community Consultation #1 Report which also provides details about who participated at our open houses and through our online survey. Take a look at this report to see who shared input with us and what they said.

Mayor Stoney arrived late, left early, and in-between told his vision for Richmond in the year 2037. Mr. Stoney’s narrative was of a single mom with two children living with her “fiancé.” Per Mr. Stoney, this modern, hypothetical “family” could all utilize public transit to shop and get to work. Unfortunately, Mr. Stoney’s narrative was not particularly helpful in setting any meaningful or specific goals for Richmond’s future.

By the way, Mr. Stoney never mentioned whether the fiancé was the children’s father, whether the fiancé had given the mother a ring or had set a wedding date. To me, those things (a ring and a date) are what make a man a fiancé (as opposed to a live-in boyfriend) —but hey, it’s 2037, why should anyone be judgmental?!

Stoney is using Richmond as a stepping stone. Unfortunately, he has to prove he actually did something if he wants to tout successes on a larger path. Right now, he is doing nothing but pissing people off.

Hi no 1 I am judgmental. That is how I decide

A good standard is addressed by the 2 comments on Richmond… 2037. Catering to business should never be a mayor’s focus.
