From Gwen Wisler for Asheville City Council:

ASHEVILLE, NC- On Tuesday, July 16, at 10 a.m., Gwen Wisler will officially file with the Board of Election to run for a seat on the Asheville City Council.

“As a CEO, I faced many economic challenges,” said Wisler. “But that experience gave me just what I needed to help the City and our citizens propel Asheville’s economy forward.”

Wisler, a former CEO of the Coleman Company, operates Asheville Profits, LLC, a business consulting company where her clients pay her by donating their time to a local non-profit of the client’s choosing.

“Safety, health, and quality-of-life are a top priority for me,” said Wisler, an avid cyclist. “I will always advocate for multi-modal transportation – that’s a key element in my platform.”

Wisler serves as president of the Botanical Gardens at Asheville, volunteers as a consultant with Mountain BizWorks, and serves on the board of Bountiful Cities. Wisler is also a member of the Asheville Buncombe Food Policy Council, a member of Healthy Buncombe, the secretary-treasurer of her Democratic precinct, and vice-president of the Grove Park Sunset Mountain Neighborhood Association.

She teaches bicycle safety skills to children and adults and participates in bicycle and pedestrian organizations such as Strive Not to Drive and the Asheville Buncombe Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force.

Prior to her work at Coleman, Wisler served as president of First Alert, Powermate and Eastpak.
