Thank you for visiting my homepage.  I am honored to serve as your Mayor. 

My staff and I are proud to work closely with our excellent city staff – from Police to Planning, Recreation to Housing, and the many more who work tirelessly to manage the city and put our collective vision in-motion.

I recently delivered the annual State of the City address which gives an overview of the city's current statistics and trends and covered my key priority areas: Economic Development, Environment and Sustainability, and Quality of Life. You can find a link to the presentation here

I look forward to building on the many successes we have achieved and reaching forward to Richmond's best years to come.   

Mayor Tom Butt
