Keever is a keeper

With all the claims, half-truths and denials rampant in our political-candidacy system, do you ever wonder what the real person is like, who she really is? I certainly do. And I know that we don't really get to know a person overnight, over a year or sometimes even after a few years.

Patsy Rouzer Keever was one of my three best friends in seventh grade, and that friendship continued through high school and college, where we were classmates. We each had a child in the same class of the university we had attended. When I moved to Asheville 18 years ago, she welcomed me warmly. Then followed years of being and working with her through our shared faith community here, not to mention working hard to help her get so close to beating Charles Taylor.

The point is that I have known this incredible person long enough and benefitted from her leadership in our county and our state over an extended period so that I know the following: Patsy Keever is honest, open, frank, truthful, hard-working, fair, clear-headed, smart, genuinely caring and possessed with a sense of humor and ability to persuade others without pushing. With full confidence I would vote for her over and over and over again. She delivers, fighting for what she has promised. And she tells us ahead of time where she stands. Let's keep her standing — for all of us! Vote for Patsy Keever!
