Mayor Stoney To Co-Chair Capital Region Collaborative


The Organizing Council of the Capital Region Collaborative (CRC) today appointed Richmond Mayor Levar M. Stoney and Dr. Gary L. Rhodes, president of J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, to chair the regional partnership for 2017.

The CRC’s Organizing Council also named Mark L. Mullinix, the first vice president and chief operating officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and Angela Y. Cabell, a member of the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors, as co-vice chairs for 2017.

“Our success as individual jurisdictions is tied to our success as a region,” said Mayor Stoney. “None of us can do it alone, but working together on the issues that unite us all, we can meet the real challenges we face and take advantage of the opportunities we have to propel our region forward. The Collaborative is the engine that will drive our successful partnership.”

The CRC is a metropolitan leadership organization that “engages government, business and community stakeholders in a process of identifying, prioritizing and implementing actions that will enhance the quality of life in the greater Richmond region, which includes the Town of Ashland, the City of Richmond, and the Counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan.”
