On Wednesday night, the Planning Association for the Richmond (PAR) kicked off the first in a series of upcoming events in the neighborhood for the District 1 Supervisor candidates. About 40 people attended.
All 10 candidates were at the event, which started with each one introducing themselves for a few minutes. Event moderator, and PAR President Richard Correia then asked questions of the candidates. Due to the size of the candidate pool, each candidate was assigned “A” or “B”, and the questions alternated from group to group. Each candidate was given 1 minute to respond.
The questions covered a wide variety of topics from transportation to housing to homeless to crime and cleanliness. Candidates were also asked which proposition on the November ballot they thought was most important, and why. Some audience questions were also answered by the candidates towards the end of the evening.
A kind onhealthy revia alcoholism soul named Antonio White livestreamed the event on Facebook, and you can watch it below.
