47. Rachel Flynn 

Richmond City Planning Director

It's been a tough year for the controversial city planner. The Jones administration reorganized and took away a chunk of her department. City Council zeroed the administration's proposed $2.5 million in the budget to buy parkland, a move supported by the master plan she helped sculpt.
