If I Were Mayor

Buz Grossberg’s Best Ways to Change Richmond

• Find the biggest magic wand in the world and move Richmond 20 minutes from New York City, replace Staten Island maybe. We’ll give them a better place to live.

• Get in a time machine and move Richmond ahead about 20 years and let it catch up with the rest of the country. Politics, socially, lifestyle, everything.

• Clean up the river, bring in more blues bands and ease parking restrictions for certain businesses to get them to move into the city.

• As mayor, I want better food. We need to stop protecting the status quo. It’s the people of Richmond who have to make the demands to get the demands filled. Our ethnic food is dumbed-down. We don’t hold our restaurant levels up to those outside of Richmond.
