South Asheville activist Vijay Kapoor has signed into the race for Asheville’s City Council. An attorney who also has degrees in economics and public policy studies, Kapoor heads a firm that consults on governmental and public-sector workforce issues for both large and small governments. If elected, he would advocate for greater involvement of neighborhood representatives in the City Council’s planning and decision-making.
Vijay was born in Chicago, the son of an Indian father and a Polish mother. He grew up in Asheville and now lives with his wife and children in the Ballantree community on Sweeten Creek Road.
I urge readers to vote for Vijay Kapoor for Asheville City Council in the [primary] election if you agree with me that “We need policies that permit rational and responsible development, but preserve what makes this area special.”
