Candidate for Richmond School Board, District 3
Cindy Menz-Erb is an experienced education professional and a natural leader, having spent the last two decades fighting for equity and justice in public schools and low-income communities. A newcomer to Richmond, Cindy had lived in the area just 8 months before being appointed unanimously from a field of 17 candidates to fill a seat left vacant when the incumbent won a special election to the House of Delegates earlier in the year.
While she already had a real impact by the fall 2017 election, it seems voter frustration with the status quo prevailed, and Cindy came up just short in her election. That said, she is a rare talent and we look forward to supporting her wherever her future leads.
