Smart Voter Official Statement for Marilyn Langlois

Candidate for
Council Member; City of Richmond

This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate

My name is: Marilyn Langlois

My age is: 62

My occupation is: Community Advocate, Organizer, and Mediator

As a long-time Richmond resident, I seek to serve you on the City Council. I offer my values, experience and commitment to keep moving Richmond in a positive direction.

City government should be transparent and inclusive. While working as a community advocate on Mayor Gayle McLaughlin's staff, I learned how good leadership can prioritize health, dignity and well-being, with particular attention to those whose needs often go unmet.

My experience as a mediator and conflict resolution trainer has given me skills to ensure open and respectful communication, so that everyone affected by important decisions can have a place at the table.

As a volunteer organizer with the League of Women Voters, March4Education, and Richmond Progressive Alliance, I have nurtured a deep commitment to social, environmental and economic justice. I accept no corporate donations because I am accountable only to you, the voters.

If elected, I'll work to attract good jobs, promote worker-owned cooperatives, further decrease violent crime through community policing and expanded violence prevention programs, reduce industrial pollution, repair our streets to be pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly, increase library and recreation activities, and continue revitalizing our city.

Together we can build a healthy Richmond for all.
