I have had the privilege to work alongside Chris Pelly for many years. I have also been honored to call him my friend. I know Chris to be a very honest and sincere man with a passion to help improve his community. He is a man of his word. He not only has a vision but a track record of being able to implement it. His values and ideas for helping to make Asheville an even more desirable place to live are practical and important for many reasons including health, economic and safety. Greenways, bike lanes and sidewalks are just a few of the assets that this community so desperately needs. Chris has always been a pragmatic consensus-builder, which has enabled him to be successful in his many endeavors.
As president of the Haw Creek Association, along with his work participating in many other projects, he has consistently demonstrated his ability to help improve people’s lives. I will be proud when Chris represents us on City Council. He will definitely work to make Asheville an even more special place to live.
