I have known Shawn for five years. Shawn has always been a good listener. More importantly I feel that Shawn has the demeanor and skills to be an effective leader. [Phillip is the Former Chair, City of Richmond Human Rights and Human Relations Commission.]

I’m thrilled that Shawn is running and am confident that with his numerous supporters, he’ll be elected and will bring his practical visionary work to our community.

I believe the City of Richmond NEEDS Shawn Dunning in a position of leadership. He doesn’t come in with prepackaged answers and solutions; rather, he develops ideas in collaboration with the people of Richmond.

We need leadership that will support more local small business that will in turn make Richmond an even more vibrant and active community for our residents. I feel Shawn brings that kind of leadership to the table.
