I support Esther Manheimer for mayor because she is the candidate who has the combination of commitment and experience that we need to lead our city.
My endorsement of Esther is based on many years of witnessing her contributions to the community before and since her election to Asheville City Council.
As a member of the Asheville City School Foundation board, I am especially appreciative of Esther’s deep understanding of the pressure that our teachers and children are facing due to statewide cuts in education. Esther is the mother of three sons in Asheville City Schools. Her husband is a high school teacher and wrestling coach. Her mother is a retired librarian and her father a retired university professor.
Esther has been a diligent City Council member. She works with city staff to fully understand their research. She rolls up her sleeves and looks into the complexities of our laws to figure out how to best protect and promote our assets. Esther also understands team play and how to connect to leaders locally and in Raleigh.
Esther Manheimer is a leader we can rely on. Join me in voting for her in the Oct. 8 mayoral primary.
