Richmond City Council is the governing body for the city of Richmond, California.

Background

The council consists of the Mayor of Richmond and six other city council members, one designated Vice Mayor. The council members are all elected from the whole city; no members are elected by district or ward. The council members are elected to four-year terms, as opposed to the previous six-year terms. They are not all elected at once.

The council members meet every first and third Tuesday of the month and, if necessary, hold special meetings on the remaining Tuesdays.

Presently, there are eight Democrats, one member of the Green Party, and no Republicans.

The city council had met at the Richmond Civic Center at City Hall for decades, but due to seismic instability the council started meeting at an alternative site in the Marina Bay neighborhood. Some of the council favored a permanent move to this site, which is newer and in one of the more affluent neighborhoods. However, the majority of the populace was against this action as it would move City Hall from a central location to a rather isolated one. The city council has now returned to meeting downtown with the reconstruction of the Richmond Civic Center.

In the 2006 city election, Gayle McLaughlin of the Green Party was elected mayor of Richmond after a close race with Democrats Irma Anderson and Gary Bell.
