We are in crisis. Our spending reflects our values, and today Richmond’s spending priorities show unconscionable apathy to people most reliant on even basic services. When our residents campaign for schools, for housing, and for transportation, we are told that public coffers are empty. When wealthy donors propose the redistribution of public funds for high-cost and low-return development however, suddenly funds are not only available, but abundant.
