RITE Richmond and Richmond Citizens (RCA) are joining forces in advance of the Oct. 15 municipal election.

RITE Richmond has five candidates: John Roston for mayor and Carol Day, Jerome Dickey, Laura Gillanders, and Michael Wolfe for councillor. RCA has four candidates for councillor: Mark Lee, Keefer Pelech, Jack Trovato, and Fipe Wong.

"This is a coalition of progressive citizens who want to see a city council that works on behalf of all of Richmond's residents,” says Roston.

Incumbent councillor Day says the current city councillors from these two parties have fought against the building of mega mansions on farmland and the development of the Garden City Lands and lobbied for a new hospital tower.

"Together, we will create a formidable council that will bring more government transparency and a commitment to working on the housing crisis and the local effects of climate change,” says Trovato.

There are five other slates of candidates running: One Richmond (two councillor candidates), Richmond Community Coalition Association (three councillor candidates and four school board trustee candidates), Richmond Education Party (six school board trustee candidates), Richmond RISE (two councillor candidates), and Richmond United (three councillor candidates and one school board trustee candidate). The remaining candidates are running independently.
