Video: Mayorathon 2nd District Forum

During the 2nd District Richmond Mayorathon forum I spoke about the urgent need for a strong, autonomous Civilian Review Board and my commitment to ensuring that the board is protected against those who will seek to undermine its authority. Here is my full statement:

“I fully support the formation of a strong civilian review board with subpoena power and the power to review and audit law enforcement policy. And in order to maintain the integrity of this vitally important body, I will also support additional mechanisms that ensure the Civilian Review Board will be insulated against law enforcement and political influence. It is essential that we protect the CRB from forces that we know will try to weaken its power. As a member of City Council, I will undermine any attempts to dilute the authority of the CRB so citizens have a legitimate and effective tool to hold law enforcement accountable.”
