Gantt thanks supporters for giving him another term

Here’s the message from from Buncombe County Board of Commissioner’s Chairman David Gantt, who won another four year term in the position Nov. 6 after soundly defeating Republican challenger J.B. Howard. Gantt sent this message Nov. 7 to supporters via his email newsletter:

Thank You

Thank you for all the time, commitment, and energy given to my re-election campaign this past year. As a direct result of your financial and temporal support, Campaign Manager, Carmen Ramos-Kennedy, and I were able to present an aggressive campaign that informed the voters of the direction in which I would like to keep the County moving, rather than any negative comparisons with my opponent. In fact, we ran a campaign that featured 100% negative-free content. I appreciate your help in enabling Carmen and myself to run this type of campaign.

Last night, voters decided to permit me to continue as Chairman based on my record of the last 4 years. I am honored with your favorable vote and I pledge to continue in a positive manner that supports education, job creation, environmental protections, and all the parts of our community that make us the best place to live in the USA. I want you to keep in touch and give me feedback as I try to be the best Chairman of Buncombe County I can be.

Thank you again for all of your prayers, encouragement, and support. We would have not been successful without your help.
