Standing up for the park
Members of Fans of Monroe Park protest May 17 after credit card giant Capital One is allowed for the fourth year to set up a huge tent on the park’s west side for stockholder meetings. Under its deal with the city, the company secures the use of the property in exchange for a contribution supporting Altria Theater, which sits across the street.
Holding signs showing their opposition are, from front left, Caroline Cox, Thomas Alleman and Maggie Johnston, and, in the background, Steve Carter-Lovejoy and Heather Price. (Regina H. Boone/Richmond Free Press)
