NBC 12 aired an interview and website story reflecting on my life, gubernatorial path and continued involvement in pursuing leadership on behalf of the people.
I encourage you to watch the full interview.
NBC 12 shared some of my life experiences through both photos and video footage. My childhood years, service in Korea, education path – from Virginia Union University to law school at Howard University. My private law practice in Church Hill, and aforementioned experiences, all helped prepare me to ascend into the political realm. From state senator to Lieutenant Governor to Governor and the first at-large elected Mayor of Richmond carrying every voting district. Speaking for the people will always be my top priority.
I’ve always placed people over party, something that is sorely needed today. Crossing the aisle was not easy, but I took the necessary steps on behalf of the people which is always right.
I don’t think about how I will be remembered. The only thing I’d like to be remembered for is that I did the best I could with what I had. I encourage people, particularly young people, do the best you can with what you’ve got.
