Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones will give his State of the City Address at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School on January 30th at 6:30 PM.
The event is free and open to the public. From Mayor Jones’s newsletter:
Our great city has made tremendous strides forward within the past year. There are cranes signaling new construction dotting our skyline, new businesses and jobs coming online, crime continues to decrease, and the city’s population is growing. Richmond is “cool” again! So what does the upcoming year have in store?
During this address, I will detail the focus points of my administration for the future, to include the upcoming City budget, improving our city’s aging infrastructure, efforts to revitalize neighborhoods, and reducing poverty.
If you’ve never been to a SotC, you should really check it out. It’s a good chance to hobknob with city officials and get a feel for the qualitative direction of our city.
