I'll be voting to return Jan Davis to Asheville City Council this fall, and I encourage Xpress readers to do the same. Jan has been a steady hand on Council since 2003, and has always had a pragmatic view about how to get the best outcomes for all stakeholders in city policy. I often see him out in town, and every time I've spoken with him, he's been genuinely interested in my opinion and has offered details on current matters that I hadn't known.
He's doesn't view the City Council as a place for pet projects, but rather as a place to serve the community. Some of us have complaints about particular things in Asheville, but few of us are leaving to go somewhere else. Jan has been a big part of our continuing success.
