Remarks as prepared for delivery
Hello Richmond…I'm so excited that you are here tonight so we can talk about our city.

The World Championships of cycling, back in the US for the first time in 30 years.

This beautiful high school--the first new one in 40 years.

The country's coolest craft brewery, coming to Richmond and bringing people and jobs to Fulton.

We're finally building an expanded public transportation system, with Bus Rapid Transit, and not just dreaming and hoping.

Look around, and you know the list goes on and on. You don't need me to say it, but I will anyway…

My friends, the state of this city is Resurgent…
and for the first time in my lifetime, we all know that Richmond's best days are ahead of us!

That wasn't clear to me when I came to Richmond to study…
