Letter writer: Young, Haynes and Lee are in tune with voters

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Keith Young, Brian Haynes and Rich Lee are active in the community and can hear the voices of the voters who support St. Lawrence Green. These three candidates for City Council are in tune with Asheville residents who support green space in front of the Basilica [of St. Lawrence].

I have supported the Sierra Club for many years, but it was a major shock to see them endorse the candidates on the other side of that debate. We don’t need another building downtown — we need green space, and for Sierra Club to take the side of more development was disappointing.

Their green sign, so similar to signs supporting Young, Haynes, and Lee is apparently meant to confuse voters. I’m not confused. I’m supporting Keith Young, Brian Haynes and Rich Lee.

    Rich Lee disparages veterans and apparantly hates the 2nd amendment … not a very nice person. Vote against Rich Lee whomever you choose for zero difference …

      LOL, you are correct. There is zero real diversity here and by that I mean not of race or ethnicity or sex, but of thought. values, and ideals lulz. That’s the problem with the national ethos these days. The false narrative of diversity is only on exterior qualities yet everyone is a trained simpleton. Otherwise if they put some actual thought into it, they might actual get angry and the selling out of their nation.
