Newsletter — November 2021

What a month! To all those enjoying this last day of the holiday weekend, I hope you get in the last lovely bits of quality time with family and, ideally, leftovers. A very happy belated Thanksgiving to all.

November was a busy time for the City Council. Below, I have four items that made the month stand out as one of our best in the last year. Thank you, as always, for reading along!

  • “Running with Scissors” — On the 19th, we had the opportunity to recognize six minority-owned businesses in the Greater Williamsburg area. Checkout the link for more information (and I promise we didn’t actually run with those three-foot scissors pictured above). The businesses recognized were: Life Beauty Supply (801 Merrimac Trail Suite G), Jazzercise Fitness Studio (455 Merrimac Trail), Nekeya’s Seafood (455 Merrimac Trail Suite E), Parties Galore Cakes and More (455 Merrimac Trail Suite C), Discover Teas (201 Penniman Road), Gholson & Associates (201 Penniman Road).

Thank you for following along with updates from the month! As always, please feel free to get in touch with me with any question/concern/comment at

With gratitude,
