Literally the one time I assume it’s South Side Community Center on Old Warwick.... the meeting is at the community center Southside Plaza. πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Anyway, at the right place. Rezoning information session thread starts here. πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
We are about to get started at the public information session. Dr. Shadae Harris, Chief Engagement Officer, is kicking things off.

β€œWe are doing this with you, not to you.”

Additionally says the Office of Community Engagement is open to feedback on engaging the community.
First dude πŸ—£: Matt Cropper of Cropper GIS Consulting who did the rezoning study.

They have worked with RPS since 2011. He noted that he has walked through the school facilities twice: in 2011 and again this year. Says he almost knows Richmond better than his own community. πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I haven’t dug into the details yet but I am so grateful that #RVACouncil found compromise at some level and were able to reach an agreement on a budget that prioritized funding for @RPS_Schools and a number of other key initiatives. Thank you for finding a path forward. (1/?) πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
I know it wasn’t easy but I really appreciate that at the end of the day #RVACouncil pulled together and found a middle ground that maintained funding for several priorities. It ain’t perfect but neither was #RVAMayor’s proposal. (2/?) πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Governance is all a work in progress and the more we can worth together to productively negotiate a path forward, the better off Richmond will be. Dropping political motives to be upfront, proactive, and honest will go a long way to help make collaboration possible. (3/?) πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Starting a thread for anything we find on google about Richmond City Board of Elections member Cherlyn Starlet Stevens. Feel free to contribute. πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
There are 7 RTD articles that she is referenced in. These are the 2 that are not related to her service on the board of elections. One article says she is a sales representative. πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Her only campaign donations have been to Gilmore’s 1998 campaign for $200. This listed her then-employer as CM Pula Co. πŸ§œπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Late night reading a Style Weekly article from 2006 about Paul Goldman. Anyone else read it and get a sense of dΓ©jΓ  vu? πŸ‘€

Brace yourself for a thread of receipts. (1/25)

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past year, you have probably heard about the β€œSchool Modernization Referendum.” Here is a great article that summarized what it is. Basically what it does is tell #RVAMayor @LevarStoney to get a plan together (2/25)…
to fully fund school infrastructure without raising taxes or publicly state it can’t be done. This was put forward by none other than Paul Goldman and carried primarily by the Richmond Crusade for Voters. The original plan was for Loupassi and Sturtevant to carry (3/25)
