Applicants Seeking to Serve on City Council



In an effort to let people know more about the applicants seeking the appointment to fill former Councilmember McLaughlin’s vacated Council seat, Radio Free Richmond offered each of the applicants an opportunity to post a statement of about 500 words along with a headshot photo.

The application process does not ask for a mailing address, a phone number or even an email address.  For that matter—the applicants are not even asked whether they live in Richmond.

Using the only tools available to them—voter registration lists valid as of August of 2016—letters were mailed to each of the applicants.  For those that did not initially respond, a second letter was mailed.

To date, RFR has received responses from:










The letters addressed to Michael Malin were returned with no such person living at that address and being unforwardable.

Invitations extended to Ada Recino, Diego Garcia and Timothy Golden have gone unanswered.

With only a few days left before the Tuesday Council meeting where the appointment may be made, if anyone knows how to get a hold of Mr. Malin, Ms. Recino, Mr. Golden or Mr. Garcia, please have them contact Radio Free Richmond by emailing to or calling at 233-2060.

    I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
    My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida….
