Stephanie Lynch Wins Special Election In Richmonds 5th District City Council Race


Social worker Stephanie Lynch pulled ahead of a crowded field of seven candidates Tuesday night to win the Richmond City Council 5th District special election. Lynch will replace Councilman Parker Agelasto, who was forced to resign after admitting to moving outside of his district last year. With more than 7,000 residents voting in the election, Lynch took around 27 percent of the vote. She easily beat out her closest opponents, Thad Williamson and Mamie Taylor, who each received about 15 percent.
