I want everything! I deserve everything I want! And I want a candidate who can give me that.
With Lael Gray on City Council, I get that. With Lael, I get someone who has held high positions in corporate America, someone who has been a small-business owner and someone who has worked in nonprofit management.
Lael has done it all. Lael has brought communities together through her work with Building Bridges and has advocated for supporting children’s development, both as an early childhood administrator and in her work with Smart Start. Lael Gray also cares about all of the local issues that I feel are worthwhile.
As a local activist she has made huge strides to protect our neighborhoods and ecosystem from potential damages caused by the proposed enlargement of the I26 connecter. But, most of all, Lael is an achiever who can visualize her goals and then strategically work to find the most powerful way of executing them. This is her genus. I want Asheville to continue to be an awesome place. I want my home to be a showcase city for our nation. And with Lael Gray, I get what I want!
