Letter writer: Beach-Ferrara is antidote to negativity in politics

Graphic by Lori Deaton

People get discouraged by politics. They see candidates, especially on the national level, acting like children. Candidates call each other names. They lie. They act like if they don’t get their way, they will take their toys and go.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara is the antidote to the disease of negativity in politics. Jasmine is kind, compassionate and thoughtful. She values collaboration and works hard to engage all sides of a discussion to find common ground.

In my interactions and work with her, Jasmine is never petty or ego-driven, and she works hard to make everyone feel heard and respected. She approaches problem-solving with hard work, reasonable analysis, and input from all those affected. Jasmine leads with her core values and leads by example.

There are big problems facing our community — school funding, dearth of affordable housing and living-wage jobs, and new obstacles created through state laws and budget cuts.

Jasmine is the person to address these challenges to protect our community. Please vote for Jasmine this primary season to ensure Buncombe County has a county [Board of Commissioners] that works for working families.

  1. Lulz

    LOL, and just think folks. You too can make a lot of money in this country by being just like this person too lulz! Full of it.

  2. Asked what set them apart from their competitors at the ABLWV candidate forum, the Reverend Jasmine Beach-Ferrara said that we are “a wonderfully diverse county in many ways, including politically and religiously,” and that she was “tired of the shrill and partisan conversations we’ve been having,” as divisive blogger Gordon Smith sits perplexed beside her, as if to say, “WHA? WHO? WHA?”.

      Tim knows nothing of “shrill and partisan”.

      Nothing at all.

      {Cough! Hack!}
