Richmond: Chevron is Losing

The Chevron Five’s days appear to be numbered. Three of the five Richmond City Council members who consistently vote with the giant oil company, were up for reelection, but only one appears to be headed for a win. As of this morning, incumbent Nat Bates, one of so-called Chevron Five, was running second (15.5%) behind challenger Jeff Ritterman (16.2%), chief of cardiology at Kaiser Richmond. The most consistent vote against Chevron, incumbent Tom Butt, was running third with 15.3% of the vote. The top three vote getters win the election.
