This is a hard pill to swallow. Look at these numbers. As a community, we can do better. How many thousands of people live in Richmond Hill? And our brother lost this race by 578 votes. Shame on all of us!
New York City Council, District 28
City Council - District 28 - Dem Primary September 13, 2017 - 09:30AM ET New York - 100 of 100 Precincts Reporting - 100%
Name Party Votes Vote % Adams, Adrienne Dem 3,341 39% David, Richard Dem 2,763 32% Powell, Hettie Dem 2,483 29%
Richard would have to figure a way to fix this if he wants to be elected to office. It will take tremendous amount of work to inspire people to vote, the mere act of registering sends fear into some people. If the people don't feel the have or deserve a voice then they will not make the effort. They don't feel that they have any skin in the game, many survived for decades without voting, he needs to convince them why they need to vote.
