26. David Hicks 

Senior Advisor to Mayor Dwight Jones

The senior adviser to Mayor Dwight Jones (No. 1), former Richmond Commonwealth’s Attorney David Hicks is the mayor’s only real fighting spirit at City Hall. He also might be heir apparent, if Jones ever decides to run for governor (although 2013 seems unlikely). With grit and political savvy, Hicks doesn’t mind pushing the more difficult choices — say, if Police Chief Bryan Norwood runs out of political capital and needs to go — and serves as the social conscience and gatekeeper for Jones.
