44 file to run for Richmond City Council, School Board

  • 0

Voters in each of the city’s nine districts will choose representatives for the Richmond City Council and the Richmond School Board in November.

Forty-four candidates are vying for those seats, according to documents filed with Richmond’s General Registrar by a Tuesday deadline.

In response to a lawsuit brought earlier this month, a Richmond judge eased ballot requirements, which pushed the filing deadline back two weeks and reduced the number of voter signatures required to qualify from 125 to 50. The ruling came in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two incumbent City Council members seeking re-election, as well as two incumbent School Board members seeking re-election, face no competition for another four-year term.
