Titus O. Olowokere, President, U.S. – Nigeria Trade Council

It was a pleasure meeting … at the Africa-America International Business Forum. On behalf of the Planning Committee of the Business Forum, I want to thank you once again for your participation. Your presentation on “Africa’s Economic Growth Potentials in Light Rail” was very well received. The information in the panel discussion was scholarly, informative, very timely and was speaking from the heart. Our only regret is that we didn’t have more time to discuss the topic with you in more detail.

We hope that you enjoyed meeting the members of the business community present, and that you will consider returning in the future to participate in other programs for the professional improvement of our Business Community in Georgia, and to foster bilateral trade relations with other national economies.

Again, a huge thank you! I look forward to future collaboration with you.

Terrance Simmons, President, Olde Huntersville Civic League

The community and Olde Huntersville Civic League would like to personally thank Mr. Wright for attending and speaking about The State of Transportation in Hampton Roads at our meeting yesterday. It was very informative and deserving.

Mark R. Warner, United States Senator, Virginia

[The Peter G Decker Jr Downtowner of the Year] award recognizes an individual whose efforts have changed the history or face of Downtown Norfolk. It honors your exemplary leadership and community involvement. You are committed to helping others and making new connections that bring us closer together as families, as neighbors and as communities. Your commitment to the broader good is especially commendable and necessary during these challenging times.

I am very pleased to join with your family, friends and community in saluting your accomplishments and wishing you the very best in your future endeavors.

Paul Fraim, Mayor, City of Norfolk, VA

[Randy] is a man of his word with real high integrity. Randy was always a big picture guy on the [Norfolk City] Council. He understood that downtown was everyone’s neighborhood and that it is important that downtown be successful and that light rail was going to be a part of that success.

While Randy was on the [Norfolk City] Council we saw tremendous growth in revenue to the city but also we saw great growth in the assessed value to the city.

[Randy] became our [City of Norfolk] representative to Hampton Roads Transit where he got very involved in National transit efforts and got to meet a lot of very important decision-makers. He used those relationships at a National, State and Regional effort to help bring light rail to Norfolk. He took us to another level.

Shurl Montgomery, Chief Executive Officer, Norfolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority

[Randy] is trustworthy and loves the City of Norfolk. Harbor Park, the Battleship Wisconsin, the [Half Moone] cruise terminal, Town Point Park, and of course everyone talks about Waterside and light rail, but I think Randy always got his two cents in on all those projects downtown. It’s been a pleasure being a friend for all these years.

Arthur Diamonstein, President, Paramont Sleep

In my 82 years, I don’t know whether I’ve met anyone quite like him. [Randy] is very pragmatic. He’ll never tell you anything he’ll do if he can’t do it. I love the guy, he really is something special.

Danielle Heitman, Community Manager, American Cancer Society Relay for Life

[Randy] is the kindest man I know. We couldn’t do all of our fundraising without your help. We are so grateful and thankful to you.

Bob Layton, CEO (ret), Atlantic Equipment Corporation

[Randy] doesn’t insult very easily. He’s tough. He’s street smart.

[Randy] came from a working background, a working family background and he understood the feelings and emotions of the blue collar working people. It is hard to go to any part of the City of Norfolk and not see something that has taken place in the last 20 years that Randy didn’t play a role in, such as moving agendas like [the development of] MacArthur Center.

Everybody in Ocean View knows that we now are an acceptable address thanks to your efforts.

Syble Stone, City Planning Commission, City of Norfolk

[Randy] is tenacious. He truly loves the City of Norfolk. And without Randy Wright, there would be no light rail [in Norfolk].

James Wood, Transportation Commissioner, Virginia Beach City Council

[Randy] had the vision that [light rail] was good for Norfolk and he focused on the things that were for the greater good of the City. Congratulations on getting the Downtowner of the Year award.
