Our democracy brings candidates into a public electoral decision-making process. A few elections are non-partisan and our Asheville City Council race is one of them. So we are left with the qualifications of each candidate to determine who is best for the job. It is Lael Gray!
Gray is a voice of reason and a fervent advocate for children, families, neighborhoods and the environment. She is not a politician in any sense of the word, but rather a humanist. Gray has consistently demonstrated the open mindedness to put aside partisan bickering and fixed political agendas to serve the overall best interests of the citizens of Asheville.
I urge you to check out Gray’s website, http://www.laelgrayforcitycouncil.com, to get a sense of the variety of ways in which she has served neighborhoods and the community. All of her experiences provide her with the knowledge and skill needed as a member of Council. We are lucky to have such a high-caliber candidate to support. I urge you to vote for Lael Gray!
