Marc Hunt has an unusual pedigree for a politician. His accomplishments in professional life and community service uniquely qualify him as at once knowledgeable, caring and capable in the very topics that City Council must grapple with on a daily basis. His financial prudence has been honed by years of leadership in the budget-making aspects of the operations of his own small business, as well as those of numerous larger enterprises, both public and private.
Marc Hunt has followed his heart in placing himself at the disposal of organizations that resonate as vehicles of a better way of life for our community at large. The pattern here is expressive of Marc's commitment to the hard work of improving the quality-of-life experience that we all share in.
In vocational pursuits Marc has provided expertise and leadership in executing the region-wide missions of the Nantahala Outdoor Center, the Self Help Credit Union and, currently, the Open Space Institute.
As a local volunteer he has served in similar leadership roles for several organizations including the Asheville Day Nursery, the Asheville-Buncombe Youth Soccer Association and the Asheville Greenways Commission.
I personally helped recruit Marc to take on the role of finance officer for ABYSA when that organization was being melded into its currently comprehensive and highly successful nonprofit service profile. Marc understands what it takes for businesses and organizations to operate successfully. He leads not by politics but by convincing others with facts and know-how! His is a uniquely talented pedigree that will help move our city in the right direction.
Thank you for helping elect Marc Hunt to Asheville City Council on Oct. 11 and Nov. 8.
