Melvin Willis

Running for Mayor, Richmond
Election: Nov. 6, 2018

My name is Melvin Willis and I was born and raised in Richmond. I have been an organizer with Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) for over 6 years. Back in 2016, I was elected onto the Richmond City Council and now serve as the cities Vice Mayor. I have been a part of efforts to prevent foreclosure and keep families in the homes, help pass rent control and just cause for eviction in Richmond, health care of undocumented community members, and recently got the Contra Costa County to repay juvenile fines and fee that were illegally taken from families since 1991.
