I support Lael Gray

As a neighbor, I have known Lael for years and have always appreciated her never-met-a-stranger approachability and her ready smile. As an Asheville resident, I can’t think of another candidate who better represents the values that are important to me, and important for Asheville.

Lael’s professional experience in and of itself is enough to get her elected; she has experience with budget management, strategic planning, training and supervising staff, communications and community outreach.

As both a small-business owner and a mother, it is perhaps this intersection of Lael’s experiences that best represent and resonate with me. Lael has managed to do all that she has done, including owning and managing a small business in Asheville, while raising two incredible daughters. Clearly she also has good time-management skills!

Lael’s integrity, intelligence, commitment, compassion and endurance will make her a valuable addition to our City Council. I will vote for Lael Gray.
