Letter writer: Lee and Haynes have my vote

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Asheville is fortunate to have so many great candidates in this year’s City Council race for three open seats.

I am backing Rich Lee and Brian Haynes because both will be loyal to the people of Asheville, with particular concern to affordability, the overmarketing of Asheville by the hotel industry and listening to what the people want.

Neither of these candidates is funded by developers, attorneys for developers or real estate mongrels. They are funded by local folks who want real representation on Council.

Please vote Nov. 3 as your vote does count!
