What started off as a historic 11 candidates grew to 12 as they took the stage at Virginia Union University Wednesday night saying they are running for mayor in Richmond.
They were grilled by former Gov. Doug Wilder, who also once served as Richmond's mayor, on how they can turn the city's schools and struggling neighborhoods around.
Thank you to all of the candidates who participated in tonight's forum. pic.twitter.com/xeyVZrrT8b— L. Douglas Wilder (@GovernorWilder) April 7, 2016
