The lowdown: Seeking a third term on Council, Jan Davis cites his leadership in bringing the Southern Conference Basketball Tournament back to a refurbished Civic Center and co-founding the Asheville Area Riverfront Redevelopment Commission. The only incumbent in the race, he's taken some flak for his votes on some development issues, including supporting the 51 Biltmore parking deck and giving the Planning and Zoning Commission final say on large downtown projects.

In his own words: “I'm not so locked in to a position that I won't change. And I'm not so locked in to my preconceived ideas that I won't be open to new ones. … I've brought balance to a lot of issues.”
