Re: “The Man Behind Richmond's Renaissance

I must take issue with the characterization of Isiah Tuner as a "mediocre director of Employment and Training." I served as Chair of the Private Industry Council while Isiah was Director of Employment and Training in the City, and I can attest that his political connections at the State and Federal levels generated lots of extra money for the City, and his political skills locally created Richmond WORKS and caused many employers to sign contracts promising to give Richmond WORKS first opportunity to place new employees. He also created the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program. I don't know whether he was a good administrator of the Employment and Training Program and the negative characterizations of him in the article as City Manager are fair, but give him some credit for the good things he did do.
