Marc Hunt pays attention to issues — and to people

Marc Hunt is running for City Council and I plan to vote for him. I'm hoping that the folks of Asheville will vote for someone and prove the primary to have been an oddity in its poor voter turn out. Off-election year or not, it's on in Asheville. Let's go, folks; do a little research and get out and vote please.

Why vote for Marc Hunt? In my experience with him, I have found him to be well informed, passionate about the topic and interested in pursuing change for the better.

From him I have learned the depth of many issues we face in our city. I have learned why dense development facilitates the smart growth of a city. I better understand that smart growth and economic development go hand in hand. I have come to understand why there aren't bike lanes everywhere and how we can work together for more. I know why if I miss the bus with my children we'll have to wait another hour for the next one. I know a bit of what is in the plan to address multimodal transportation in our city. I'm glad he sees the rights of the individual and is willing to speak out for fairness for those in our city.

Marc is insightful and understands some of Asheville's toughest challenges, and he approaches those issues with great objectivity. I know more about Asheville every time I speak with Marc Hunt.

Marc Hunt pays attention to the issues and he will pay attention to the people of our city. My family and I will look toward him to continue to work for a city that represents healthy living, adheres to a fair-minded approach and allows its people the ability to forge a living so as to be here and enjoy the place.
