Former Avail hype-man Beau Butler announces Mayoral bid in Richmond

Beau Butler, local Richmond, VA bartender and former hype-man/cheerleader for RVA punk band Avail has announced that he has decided to enter his name into the 2016 Richmond Mayoral race.

You can check out Butler’s official statement below. It could use a little cleaning up, but he certainly knows where his priorities lay.

Avail never officially broke up, but they have been relatively inactive for the past six years. 

“Well now it’s official I guess? Clay Aiken is running for Congress!!! Cause where else should a quasi famous singer (I use the word singer lightly) who also happens to be gay have the best chance of winning? The South of course, where else!? I mean he’s following a long line of great people like Ronald Reagan, Sonny Bono, Ben Jones aka Cooter from the Dukes of Hazard, Jesse Ventura and Arnold into politics. With all that being said, I’m going to announce that I’m officially running the the Mayor of Richmond!!! Who wants to start the petition??? 2016 is gonna be my year I can feel it.

As part of my platform, I submit the following things that I may or may not do. It will be legal for women to be able to bare their chest the same way men do. Whenever/wherever they want because I believe in equal rights.

I would make it a priority to harass people who make it their business to fuck with restaurants with frivolous lawsuits about whatever they can think of, such as the recent article on the RVA Mag website and people that are Yelpers, cause no one likes a Yelper. Also, I will have a website to post pictures of shitty tippers and their tips to be able to reference them, sorta like the sex offender website.

I will continue $2 highballs… and a DJ.

Other things I might ban or not: wearing crocs or flip flops in public, tiny women in huge SUVs driving in The Fan, and I will make Carytown a no car area. All students will have to pay an annoyance tax cause they are annoying as shit and their dumb ass parents dropping them off will also be assessed a dips[]hit tax. I will outlaw sports bras and flannel shirts will be banned if you live in The Fan. I will open the GRTC back to the public. All gastropubs will have to remove that word from their signage.”
