In their own words: Asheville City Council candidates make their case

Over the past week, Xpress ran interviews with each of the five Asheville City Council candidates running this year for three seats, asking them about administration, infrastructure, the city’s underserved populations and more.

Part of these interviews will appear in Xpress’ Oct. 30 voter guide. Early voting runs through Nov. 1, and election day is Nov. 5. Below, for your voting perusal, are all the interviews in one place.
