I hope you are staying warm, safe and healthy.
I would like to virtually introduce you to our newest member on Norfolk City Council, Danica Royster. You may know that Angelia Williams Graves won the special election for the recently vacated seat in the 90th District of the Virginia House of Delegates succeeding former Delegate Joe Lindsey who went on to become a General District Court Judge in Norfolk. Councilwoman Royster will represent Superward 7 until May, 2022 when there will be an election for this seat.
Councilwoman Royster is in wealth management at First Genesis of Virginia, LLC located here in Norfolk. She was given the special appointment on January 13 after interviewing with Norfolk City Council. Please visit her page to learn more: (click here)
Below you will see a photo of new stop signs on Redgate Avenue. Several other stop signs were placed in the Chelsea Business District as well. Slowing traffic and making it safer for pedestrians and drivers was a necessity in this area. As you know, neighborhood safety is one of my platforms and this traffic safety measure is one way this is demonstrated. I posted this picture on Facebook and received lots of positive feedback from neighbors.
The vaccine is top of mind for everyone. For those Norfolk residents interested in receiving the vaccine, please pre-register via this link. The Dept of Health will then be in touch with you to schedule a future appointment based on supply availability and prioritization of those eligible. For now, Virginia will receive 105,000 doses/week and local health districts will receive dose amounts based on community population.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on Norfolk City Council and represent Ward 2. I focus on the priorities of economic development, safe neighborhoods, education and flooding/sea-level rise. I especially have enjoyed the experiences of advocating for one person at a time, one business at a time, one street at a time, one block at a time, and one neighborhood at a time. Constituent service is of great importance to me. I am excited to continue and run for re-election in May of 2022. The time has come to prepare for this effort. I appreciate the past support. As I plan for the future I realize I now need financial support. I welcome your contribution via this link or you can mail a check to the following:
