Tom Butt has been mayor of Richmond since 2014. The East Bay city boasts 32 miles of waterfront along San Francisco Bay and is home to a Chevron refinery employing 1,200 people. Last month, Richmond joined other California cities and counties in suing oil producers, including Chevron, for actions they allege harm the environment and public health. Mayor Butt, who is running for re-election this year, is also trying to combat homicides in the city and attract economic investment to Richmond.
