I endorse Eleanor Thompson for Richmond City Council, because I trust her to work in the best interest of the residents of Richmond. I ask you to vote for Eleanor Thompson on November 3, 2020. She is passionate about building a stronger community here in Richmond.

Remi Payne, City of Richmond Parks & Recreation Commissioner

I endorse Eleanor Thompson without reservation. Her intelligence, sincerity, perseverance, and diligence, as well as her commitment, dedication, and familiarity with the community, make her uniquely qualified to serve the City of Richmond. 

Allison Blakeley, City of Richmond Parks & Recreation Commissioner

Eleanor Thompson labored throughout the City of Richmond as a political activist speaking to our youth and fighting against gang warfare, guns in our streets, and crime. I duly endorse Mrs. Thompson, because I am sure that she is the right person to represent Richmond City Council, District 1.

Pastor Louis Spicer

Without reservations, as your Vice Mayor, I enthusiastically encourage voters in District 1 to seriously consider Ms. Thompson's candidacy and vote for her on November 3, 2020. I promise in doing so, you will not regret it.
