On the eve of the Governor's planned entry into Phase One of recovery, Mayor Stoney made the right—but hard—decision to ask for a delay in the City of Richmond. I've written a lot elsewhere about the weird/strange/incomplete/shady/confusing data the Governor has used to build his timeline for recovery. I'm proud of the Mayor and his team for pushing back on that timeline, asking for Richmond-specific data, and then making the informed, empathetic, and clear-eyed decision to protect the health and safety of Richmonders.
