49. Yvonne W. Brandon 

Richmond City Schools Superintendent

The city's school superintendent isn't considered much of an improvement over her beleaguered predecessor; she's been accused in some quarters of fudging test scores, burying audits and discouraging alternate viewpoints.

The city's watching to see what she's willing to do with her power and position.
