Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. Each voter has one vote. Yes, our thoughts and opinions do matter. We can have the greatest impact upon our lives, our families and our communities by voting for candidates with the vision and commitment to make Buncombe County better.
With thoughtful consideration of our local issues and our candidates, I support Nancy Nehls Nelson as our District 2 Buncombe County commissioner. Nancy is on a mission to strengthen our schools, keep our economy strong, protect our mountains and ensure that everyone in Buncombe County has the services they need to succeed and thrive.
Nancy Nehls Nelson has made it clear that support for public education is her top priority. She is passionate about education and believes it is one of the key components to end poverty. She supports programs that improve school climate and enhance learning at all levels of education, including preschool, community colleges and continuing education.
Nancy Nehls Nelson understands the importance of working in partnership with state leaders to improve public education. Nancy is committed to doing everything in her power to ensure that Buncombe County’s educators and support staff are funded properly to the fullest extent of Buncombe County’s authority and that students have the resources they need to be successful. Nancy will insist that the state step up to its responsibility to fully fund education and to return funding to 2008 levels plus inflation.
Nancy Nehls Nelson has the vision and commitment to make Buncombe County an even better place to live and work. I’m investing in Buncombe County by voting for Nancy on Nov. 8.
