In January 2017, Richmond got a new mayor, city council, AND school board. Now with a new group of elected officials, our job as residents to stay involved and hold them accountable. Of course, to do that, you need to know who the elected officials are and how to contact them. Brookland Park Post is pleased to present your 3rd and 6th district elected officials.
