Charlie Diradour throws his hat in the ring

Charlie Diradour (right) chats with Wayne Powell at a benefit for Shannon Taylor last year.

Richmond developer Charlie Diradour is running for Richmond City Council. From Style Weekly:
The local real estate developer and longtime political adviser officially filed his “statement of organization” with the city registrar’s office this morning to run as a candidate in the 2nd District.

Diradour will likely challenge incumbent Charles Samuels, who is expected to run for reelection but has yet to officially announce his intentions.

Long a behind-the-curtains adviser -- he’s worked on mostly local campaigns, including Mary Sue Terry’s successful run for state attorney general in 1985 and former 2nd District Councilman Bill Pantele’s unsuccessful bid for mayor in 2008 -- Diradour briefly challenged U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-7th, in 2009.
