The Brandon Howard for Hopewell Ward 5 City Council 2020 campaign is having a virtual rally Wednesday, April 22nd at 7 pm as a live stream from the campaign’s Facebook page. While we’re all quarantining at home, social distancing, it’s given many of us the chance to think more about the future of our city and the commonwealth as a whole. From chairing the Hopewell Republican Committee to being one of the most active gun rights supporters here in as the founder of Right to Bear Arms Virginia, Brandon has been dedicated to serving the city of Hopewell for years.
During the 2018 election season Brandon was instrumental in exposing the corruption within the city’s electoral board in having two of the members removed along with the then City Registrar. The same went for standing up to state delegate Mark Levine by protesting House Bill 961, which would have automatically made a large amount of legal gun owners in Virginia felons at the stroke of a pen.
Hopewell is a city that has about a 20% poverty level, approximately twice that of the state of Virginia, and a high school graduation rate that falls in the bottom half of the state. The median income is also nearly half that of the state as a whole. The opportunity for growth and opportunity is here in the city of Hopewell but it won’t be realized so long as the same people remain in office with some there going on short of 20 years.
The Brandon Howard campaign, which launched in December 2019 has demonstrated its support for the second amendment with a gun giveaway for its campaign supporters. After the first 200 donations of $25 or greater, a Diamondback AR15 was given away in a raffle with a Taurus 1911 being the next to be given away after the next 200 donations of $25 or greater come in. From education to public safety, fiscal responsibility and economic development, these are all things Brandon Howard looks forward to working on when elected the next ward 5 city councilmember in Hopewell.
