J.B. Howard will put taxpayers first

As a past candidate for Buncombe County commissioner, I had the privilege of getting to know most of the candidates during primary season. One person in particular stood out: J.B. Howard, candidate for Buncombe County Board of Commissioners chair. J.B. is honest, holds firmly to his strong values, is a champion of small business, and will stand up to special interests.

On any day, you’re likely to find him outside a Lowes or Home Depot, talking to regular folks going about their business. A longtime resident, retired highway patrolman and successful small-business owner, J.B. understands the concerns of Buncombe citizens and small businesses, and will look out for their interests.

With J.B. at the helm, gone will be the days when environmental clubs force a commission vote without input from the other side, or when special deals are given to friends and donors. J.B. will hold the line on taxes, make Buncombe County government more efficient and business-friendly and uphold your property rights. The board chair is a very important position; it sets the tone and agenda for the commissioners. We need a good, honest person with proven integrity. We need J.B. Howard as commission chair.
