RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It was an emotional night for one of Richmond's longtime leaders.

"I couldn't think of anyone else after giving 18 years to this community from school board to city council. There is no one else that I could even give consideration to wanting to support for this position other than Cynthia Newbille," said Del. Delores McQuinn, 70th District.

Delores McQuinn is praising the woman she handpicked to replace her on the Richmond city council.  Cynthia Newbille is the 7th district's new representative.

"I want to say thank you. Thank you for their vote of confidence. I am humbled. This is an incredible opportunity to serve the community. As I said before that I grew up in that I care about that I've worked in," said Newbille.

Newbille's the acting director of the nonprofit Family Resource Center and the she manages the East End Initiative. 

"I look forward to working with them collaboratively and inclusively to address the challenges confronting our community," said Newbille.

Newbille plans to resign from her current positions to focus on the city council full time. Delores McQuinn handily won her re-election to the 70th house district seat.
