Re: “Commentary: What if public housing was gradually spread across the city with the help of private developers?

The reason projects, throughout Richmond and America, are "contained and isolated within well-defined borders." is systemic racism. Today this translates to NIMBY. Richmond communities will never accept public housing. The cry of lower home valuations, neighborhood and school safety will be loud. The optimist in me agrees and supports the ideas of this article, they may have worked in other areas of America, but the realist in me says Richmond communities are not ready.

Re: “VIDEO: Women in Dave Brat’s "Grill" About Town Hall Meeting

I do not believe you are "slammed". You do not work 24/7. You admitted to being other places but you cannot show up in your own district. Do not marginalize or make light of you own constituents. To paraphrase: We voted you into this Congress, we can vote you out of this Congress.

Re: “Richmond Group Offers a Plan to Save the Diamond

This would not be an issue if the mayor knew anything about planning for the future and acquiring investors. Hopefully next election, Richmond will elect someone with a city administration background.

Re: “The Frustrating, Depressing, Embarrassing Story Behind Richmond City Hall’s Mind-Numbing Financial Mayhem

Starting at the mayor's office, this is the classic case of the Peter Principle: "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."
