Jon Baliles announces run for Richmond's 1st District City Council seat
This is a really exciting development: Jon Baliles is running for Richmond City Council in the 1st District. He is running to unseat Bruce Tyler.
Jon is going make a great candidate. He's savvy and has deep roots in Richmond; he has a common sense understanding of what this city needs to move forward. If elected, he'll go a long way towards helping to provide Richmond with the kind of leadership it needs.
Oh, and it doesn't hurt that he's the son of former Governor Gerald Baliles.
Best of all, he's a fellow blogger. It will be exciting to see how Jon Baliles uses new media in his challenge to Tyler.
