Marc Hunt garnered the most votes for Asheville City Council in the Oct. 11 election and should do so again in November because he is so qualified. I came to know and admire Marc when I served as a fellow member of the Asheville Greenway Commission from 2000 to 2008. As chairman of the Commission, he was a good listener who was able to hear and acknowledge all sides of a discussion.
Not only is Marc genuinely concerned about maintaining and enhancing our environment, as evidenced by his role at the Open Space Institute, but he is also extremely knowledgeable about issues of financing. He has had solid business experience as Chief Financial Officer of Nantahala Outdoor Center, helping to lead a team of 500 employees. He has also served on the board of the Self-Help Credit Union.
I believe that Marc Hunt would be a capable and conscientious City Council member who would faithfully serve the voters of Asheville.
