Though Richmond’s City Council will officially elect its president during an organizational meeting Wednesday, at least one council member says 2nd District Councilman Charles R. Samuels has already locked up the votes to win the position.

Charles Sammuels is a joke. I’ve lived in the 2nd district for 7 1/2 years and each time that I’ve seen him at HJWHA meeting he is very disconnected from the needs of the actual community. He supports the needs of some businesses in the area, but again it depends on what side of Broad St you are concern with. People who have lived in the 2nd district longer that I need to wake up and be more aware of who is actually supporting this guy and why. He’s no help to the community which is trying protect their interest, only those who are new and have a financial stake to protect or expand in the area. Homeowners vs Businesses/Developers. Who does Chuck listen and respond to?
The guy who was outspent by more than a two-to-one ratio is a sleazy business development guy? I don’t know, maybe I’m not understanding your statement. This is Samuels: http://www.vpap.org/candidates/profile/home/152342
This is his opponent, “Charlie” Diradour: http://www.vpap.org/candidates/profile/home/106620
Click on the ‘Money In’ tab on each of these pages. What do you think now? Developers and nightclub owners are Charlie Diradour’s base.
I understand I haven’t conclusively proven that Samuels isn’t a business development guy, but it sure doesn’t look like it. Are there other things I need to look at?
