I’ve never voted before in my life. I’ve never really even paid that much attention to politics or felt excited about anyone running for office — until now.
I met Mark Cates a couple of weeks ago while hanging out with friends at Wedge Brewing Co. After meeting him, I asked why he was running. He told me all about his plans to grow Asheville’s green economy and get people employed again. Besides his great ideas, he’s actually a cool guy, too, who’s not like the usual stiff politicians I’ve seen.
I made sure to register to vote so I can vote for Mark in the October primary. I hope anyone else out there who wants a normal person on City Council does the same.
