Richmond (VA) REALTORS® Fight for Good Schools – and Win!

March 2014

In Richmond, VA, REALTORS® have long understood the strong correlation between good schools and home values.  Last year, they had to fight for it.  The 4,000-member Richmond Association of REALTORS® put a $95,000 Issues Mobilization Grant from NAR to work on a campaign to use a restaurant meals tax on food and beverages to help fund public schools.  Working with other community groups, their successful campaign prevented drastic cuts to the school system budget.
