RICHMOND, Va. - June 6, 2016 - PRLog -- History is being made in the city of Richmond, VA. Two women are running for the Mayor candidacy and LaTonya Taylor, Owner of Alcove Martini Bar and Creator of She's A Boss Network, along with her partner Shemicia Bowen, Creator of Ladies Who Lead have created a platform for celebration! They will be hosting a run/walk titled "Run the City" that will begin at Alcove Martini Bar, located at 1112 E. Main St. Richmond, VA and end  at the steps of City Hall in Richmond.

This event is not just for women; men and families are welcomed to attend and participate. On site, there will be a voter's registration table and a warm up will be conducted by fitness partner, Tamara Arnold. Both of the women running for Mayor, Michelle Mosby and Lillie A. Estes have confirmed attendance. This Rally/Race/Voter Registration Drive event is extended to all women candidates competing for other elected positions including City Council and School Board.

When asked about the reason of creating this platform, both LaTonya and Shemicia state "Run the City was conceived as an opportunity to be cheerleaders for women who have decided to run for public office. We want to spotlight the women in a way that hadn't been done before. The intentional imagery of having women stand with each other, even though there are vying for the same position is powerful. "

Registration to participate is free and can be done by visiting  For more information on Run the City, please contact Tonya (Email: or Phone: 804-304-7550) or Shemicia (Email: or Phone: 804-943-5036). To join in on the conversation via Social Media, please use #RunTheCityRVA.
