The first time I met Drew Reisinger, I was struck by the priority he gave to me and our conversation. It's rare to be introduced to someone who looks you in the eyes and tries right away to learn something real about who you are, but Drew did just that, with a warmness all his own. I could feel that I was talking to someone who genuinely cares for people and is interested in what makes them unique.
After experiencing Drew's accessibility in our first interaction, I haven't hesitated to get to know him and his work. Like his personal actions, Drew's leadership at the register of deeds office focuses on individuals and holds equal service for all as fundamental. I especially appreciate Drew's efforts to make materials in Spanish available online and in print to the Latino community. By hiring two bilingual staff members he has enabled Spanish speakers to obtain vital records and is creating a stronger community for all residents of Buncombe County.
It was one of these staff members, a dear friend of mine, who introduced me to Drew, and I know from her that he is a conscientious and fair employer who offers a certified living wage to his employees.
It's easy to see that Drew is dedicated to serving the people of Buncombe County and that he respects the environment and resources that sustain us as well. His ethic of environmental stewardship led him to implement an e-recording and recycling program, leading by example for other local government offices.
I trust Drew as register of deeds for Buncombe County because he values making the world a better place as his personal commitment. He has full scope on the big picture while maintaining the ethic of individual service.
