Johnette A. Richardson
Belair-Edison Neighborhoods, Inc.
Johnette A. Richardson’s favorite event of the year is when she brings a group of women together for the Financially Independent and Empowered Women Academy to connect and learn about topics like buying a home, starting a business and living a healthy lifestyle.
She is committed to helping Belair-Edison residents thrive. The neighborhood association predicted and responded to the housing collapse in 2008, unmasking real estate scams and creating a strong foreclosure prevention program. BENI was also a founding member of the Baltimore Homeownership Preservation Coalition, where Richardson is a steering committee member.
She is also a commissioner on the Baltimore City School Board.
