Smart Voter Official Statement for Bea Roberson

Candidate for
Council Member; City of Richmond

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

My name is: Bea Roberson

My age is:

My occupation is: Retired Construction Accountant

Education and Qualifications:

Leadership means listening to everyone, shelving personal agendas and representing ALL of the people. That's how I lead as President of the Richmond Neighborhood Coordinating Council and as Chair of the Police Commission and that's how I'll lead when serving as your representative on the Richmond City Council.

If we want to address the many problems facing us here at home-- joblessness, drugs, crime, a failing infrastructure and a divisive atmosphere--we need leaders who understand and are willing to reach out to every neighborhood forming partnerships with our residents, our businesses and ourfaith community to find solutions.

Instead of pushing our businesses out of Richmond we need to find ways to bring more businesses--and job opportunities--back to Richmond.

Balancing our environment needs with the need to employ Richmond residents will expand our tax base. A thriving business community broadens our tax base bringing good paying jobs (with benefits) and allows us to fund our libraries, rec centers, police and fire departments. It's all about quality of life.

I would be honored to have your support and your vote. Won't you please call me at (510) 334-8979 to share with me your vision of a better Richmond?
