New 5th District Politics, Or At Least Coverage

With Election Day behind us, it is noteworthy that not only do we have a new Fifth District Councilperson and School Board representative, but we also a lot of revived interest and media coverage for the district.

I am still hoping to read notes on an organizing meeting that happened this past Friday at the Randolph Community Center. But first I may need to listen to the interviews on the latest Open Source show from WRIR. The title: “Ushering in th Age of Agelasto for Richmond’s Fightin’ 5th”.

Last, but certainly not least, now might be a good time to review a new web page from watchdog C.Wayne Taylor, which ‘wiki’s’ the City’s winning candidates. Citizens should learn and track the promises made. The campaign contact info on there might alone make it worthwhile to bookmark, given some of the past lack of response from those e-mail addresses on the city’s web page!
