Amy C. Wentz
Amy is a Richmond native, devoted mother, veteran, entrepreneur, innovator, and public advocate. As a lifelong resident of Richmond’s Southside and a proud graduate of Richmond Public Schools, Amy has firm ideas on how to improve communication throughout the 8th district in order to keep residents informed of important issues. As an advocate of active citizenship, Amy truly believes that engaged and informed residents lead to better communities. Understanding that a district is as strong as its constituents, she has diligently worked with the past two administrations to improve the public education system, promote safe and healthy neighborhoods, and to begin to create more equitable outcomes for residents through Southside Richmond and beyond.
Amy sees investment in Richmond as deeply personal and knows that the residents of the 8th district require a dependable and well-rounded public servant on the City Council. A U.S. Army Veteran, who presently works for the Department of Defense, Amy understands that the 8th district needs someone who is willing to listen and is dedicated to fighting for their needs. She has served her country in the military, her community through advocacy, and now she is ready to continue making change by serving the residents of the 8th district as their representative on the Richmond City Council. The time is now for a new vision #inthe8th and a fresh perspective that will create a positive way forward.
