Big Idea: First things first

• Maintain a balanced budget without raising taxes while still providing necessary services such as police, fire, water, garbage pickup, recycling and parks.

• Continue to strengthen regional partnerships.

• Plan affordable, long-term capital investments to improve our quality of life (sidewalks, greenways).

• Work with our legislative delegation to protect and enhance Asheville (e.g., the study of the water system).

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
