Jan Davis brings experience to the table

While I voted for several of the top vote getters in last week’s City Council primary election, I also voted for Jan Davis. I believe that it’s important that we have a balanced representation on Council. Jan Davis brings a mature, experienced background to the table. His investment through his downtown business is invaluable, as is his involvement with his customers who represent a variety of viewpoints. It’s in his best interest for Asheville to continue to grow and to flourish.

Finally, he has shown an ability to hear all sides of an issue, and to have the flexibility to change his opinion.

I believe that we will benefit by keeping Jan Davis on City Council.

    The perception of Jan Davis as listening to all sides of an issue & being flexible to change his opinion might be only in the direction of business interests.
    When it came to the rezoning of the Caledonia site that would have protected the safety & property rights of hundreds of neighbors in Kenilworth, he “couldn’t change the rules in the middle of the game”, despite the fact that the developer had not been granted a building permit. Rules are changed in the middle of the game all the time for developers, that is called Conditional zoning!
