Mayorathon 2016!

RVA non-profits Bike Walk RVA, James River Association, Sportsbackers, Richmond Forward, RVA Rapid Transit, Storefront for Community Design have assembled to bring hard hitting questions to your RVA mayoral candidates. Joining the team will be Richmond Magazine and the VMFA to produce MAYORATHON 2016! The details…

1.   September 29th at the VMFA’s Leslie Creek Theater (6:30 to 8pm)

2.   It’s FREE, so bring yourself and others

3.   RSVP so we can get a headcount

4.   Reception to follow from 8 to 9pm

Questions will include RPS school funding, new high speed rail, the next step for bike-walk infrastructure, Riverfront Plan implementation, city-wide master plan, and more. Don’t worry, we’ve been taking notes on the debates and are looking to cut the fluff and give you the well-toned muscle of the key issues facing RVA.

In the following weeks, Richmond Forward with Richmond Magazine will help publish candidate responses to our questionnaire and those developed by our non-profit partners—stay tuned.
