above, I think many of the challenges in our community are intertwined, so I don't know that I could choose
one as the most pressing challenge. Of course, access to equitable education opportunities is an extremely present and,
obviously, vitally important challenge facing Richmond City. However, I do think it is imperative to recognize that ensuring that
children (and adults) have access to healthy food, high-quality health care, safe and affordable housing, access to
transportation, etc. is integral to a person's ability to succeed in school (and beyond).
