Join host Steve Early and family for a fundraiser for Melvin Willis for Mayor. Melvin is currently a City Council person and Vice Mayor and looking to unseat the incumbent, Mayor Butt. Come to this fundraiser and support Melvin in his quest to bring to City Hall Team Richmond's vision of "Homes, health care, jobs and justice for all!"
Melvin was born and raised in Richmond and attended local schools. He has served as a City Council member since 2012 and also served as a Richmond Planning Commissioner (2012-2014). . For eight years he has worked as a Community Organizer with Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE). In that role he defends homeowners from the greed of banks and speculators and helps tenants whose rents are skyrocketing. In 2013 he was honored to receive the 17th annual “Mario Savio Young Activist Award.”
Delicious refreshments will be served and donations collected after hearing from Melvin.
