Cynthia I. Newbille to be sworn in as new East End 7th District Councilwoman


Richmond City Hall

900 E. Broad Street, Suite 200

Richmond, Virginia  23219

All citizens invited and encouraged to attend

WHAT            Pending certification by the Richmond Board of Elections of the local election held Tuesday, November 3, 2009, Cynthia I. Newbille will be sworn in as the new Councilwoman for the Richmond City Council East End 7th District during its upcoming Formal Richmond City Council meeting.

            Ms. Newbille will fulfill the remaining three years of the elected term for that district, which was left vacant by the departure of Councilwoman Deloris L. McQuinn in December of 2008.

            Subsequent to her election to Richmond City Council in November 2008, Councilwoman McQuinn was elected in a Special State Election as 70th District Delegate to the Virginia General Assembly and resigned her Council position, as she was not legally able to hold both. (Note: The position of 70th District Delegate was left vacant by Dwight Jones as he resigned after being elected Mayor of Richmond.)

            In February 2009, Richmond City Council appointed Betty L. Squire to temporarily fill in as Councilperson for the East End 7th District until the election of a new member this month.

            Ms. Newbille’s term will run November 2009 to December 2012.
