Richmond, VA — Mayor Levar M. Stoney completed his ninth community office hours event at Broad Rock Library last night, following through on his commitment to meet with citizens in each of the city’s nine districts, in their districts, and face-to-face.
The mayor’s community office hours meetings began in June and provided an opportunity for hundreds of Richmond residents to meet with the mayor, make suggestions and share their ideas and concerns.
“I meant it when I said I want to hear from our citizens,” said Mayor Stoney. “This is part of the process of building ‘One Richmond,’ where we move our city forward in a more engaged and cohesive way to benefit everyone who calls Richmond home.”
The mayor’s initiative re-establishes the first regular mayoral district meetings since the Wilder administration. “I thank all those who participated,” added the mayor. “We’re going to keep this going and continue to proactively collaborate with our citizens.” Mayor Stoney’s community office hours will begin again in early 2018.
