Integrity is not often a word heard in politics. Neither is compassion, sincerity or generosity. These are ideals we teach our children, aspire to in our own lives, but do not always find in our elected officials.
Buncombe County is fortunate to have a public servant who embodies to these principles — Drew Reisinger, our register of deeds. Drew lives his values and they guide the way he lives his life, interacts with the community, and manages the Register of Deeds office. If you have met Drew, you know he greets all he meets with dignity and genuine kindness.
Drew has promoted inclusion, service and respect. He has expanded Spanish translation and made it easier for all people to do work in the office. Last fall when the We Do campaign sent couples to the office to ask for marriage licenses, Drew and his staff treated each person as respected and valued community members. This treatment is standard in the register of deeds office under Drew’s leadership and demonstrates values he holds most dear.
Drew is not your typical politician; he’s a natural leader with a vision for our community. Drew expects the best from people and gives nothing else but the best and most he has to give. I have seen Drew work tirelessly and passionately on the issues he believes in and I can imagine no better public official to serve Buncombe County.
Drew embodies what an elected official should be and can be. Drew is the kind of person that inspires and encourages those around him to be better. We need more public servants like Drew Reisinger. Drew represents the best of who we are and because of this he has my full and undivided support on May 8.
