Jack Berry, winner of the Dogtown Dish Mayor Poll announced his resignation from Venture Richmond and has hinted at a run for Mayor. If our intuition is correct, his final announcement will be nothing more than a formality. Jack Berry is almost certainly running for Mayor.
If you are unfamiliar with Jack Berry, he is the Executive Director behind Venture Richmond which brought the Folk Festival to Richmond. Venture Richmond is a non-profit which not only oversees the Folk Festival, but manages Friday Cheers, Dominion Riverrock, and the downtown Canal. Venture Richmond was also behind the creation of Richmond’s RVA marketing campaign and its ubiquitous black and white bumper stickers.
Mr. Berry’s winning of the Dogtown Dish Mayor Poll was closely contested by Levar Stoney. Our guess is that Mr. Stoney’s announcement will also be forthcoming.
