The lowdown: After living in Asheville for several years, Saul Chase says he doesn’t want to change the city fundamentally — he just wants to make it better. Specifically, that means fixing its neglected streets and sidewalks. Frequently referencing his eight years on the Boone Town Council, Chase says he’s determined to bring Asheville’s infrastructure up to the level the city deserves.

In his own words: “Municipal government should really be about efficient delivery of services, not about ideological issues. That’s what I was able to accomplish in Boone, and that’s the main reason I’m running for Asheville City Council, because I’m concerned about the quality of the streets and sidewalks.” — Saul Chase
