Click Here to Fix City Council 

Error: Embedded data could not be displayed.

Richmond City Council members piled into a conference room at the University of Richmond on Monday to brainstorm ways they could, you know, be a better City Council.

It was part of the council’s annual, day-long retreat, and ideas flowed for hours. As individual council members made suggestions, staffers wrote them down on giant pieces of easel paper and stuck them to the wall -- no judgment, no debate. Just raw ideas.

Curious what your elected representatives think would raise their profile and make them a more effective, powerful body? We’ve got you covered. We transcribed verbatim the (often incomprehensible) notations that made it to paper and fed them into the randomizer above.

Each click brings us closer to becoming a tier-one city.
