Viola served on the council from 2001 from 2013 and was also a retired city police officer. Few could match her fiery spirit, her outspokenness, and her ability to debate the issues with such vigorous force. Councilwoman Richardson was always a staple figure of the Bethune Center. Not only did she maintain an office location in our facility during her time in office, but she was also instrumental in setting the Center’s agenda during its early years. Our community is left with a void today, and her presence will be missed. We wish her a peaceful journey.
