Marc Hunt has a vision for Asheville

I am writing to endorse Marc Hunt in his bid for Asheville City Council. Marc’s many years of business, nonprofit management and community-service experience will bring much practical value to Council. His deep commitment to his community will bring value to the whole city.

Marc has a long and successful record of business and organizational development, as an entrepreneur, business executive, financial officer, program manager and nonprofit director. He has been very active with local community programs, including the Asheville-Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA) and the Asheville Greenway Commission.

Over the years, I have personally seen the tangible results of Marc’s dedicated work: from helping bring Greenlife Grocery to Asheville as a loan officer at the Self Help Credit Union, to the transformation of the ABYSA youth soccer program while he was a director, to his continuing work developing the Greenways in Asheville and land-trust projects throughout the region.

Beyond his deep experience and history of community involvement, though, Marc has a vision for Asheville. I encourage you to visit his website — — to learn more about that vision. Marc thinks like an entrepreneur and acts with a social conscience. He is a good listener, and has a long career of building coalitions and managing projects to creatively solve business and community problems.

I urge all those who want the best for Asheville to support Marc Hunt for City Council.
