"As a teacher, and as a Delegate, I know how important it is that we elect people who will be advocates for universal access to quality public education. I am proud to endorse Stephanie because I’ve seen her be an advocate in the General Assembly for increased resources, equity, and support for our Public Schools. We can’t achieve those goals without effective partners at the local level, and I know she will continue that important work on City Council."
Delegate Schuyler VanValkenburg, Delegate for the 72nd District, and High School Civics Teacher at Glen Allen High School

"I am supporting Stephanie because I believe she will be a strong voice for our community. As a foster parent, I appreciate the work she's done to improve the foster care system - both in the City of Richmond and across the Commonwealth. I know that - as our city councilor - she'll listen to our concerns, and continue to advocate for children and families in all corners of the district."

“As a friend and colleague of Stephanie’s, I’ve watched her in action as she’s taken on some of our system’s greatest challenges, simply because it was the right thing to do. Not only will she bring a new generation of leadership to Council, but I trust she will bring that same commitment to justice and tenacity for getting things done in the 5th.”
Elizabeth Parker: 5th District Carytown Resident


"When I'm not serving as President of the Randolph Neighborhood Association, I am active every day in our Community. I know how important it is that we have representatives on City Council who are engaged, responsive, and committed to listening to the needs of every day citizens. I know that Stephanie will be all of those things and more as our next 5th City Councilperson, and that is why I am proud to endorse her."
Latasha Wyche, Randolph Neighborhood Association President, 5th District Resident
