Heather Whitaker Goldstein impresses us as a candidate for Superior Court Judge. Lawyers who know her say she has a great legal mind, but we know Heather as a community leader. We love her hands-on commitment to the people of Buncombe County.
Heather values justice, fairness and equality. As a private-practice attorney, she won a statewide award for providing pro bono legal services. As the director of the Asheville Jewish Community Center, she created a financial aid program, expanded access to childcare and eldercare and developed services to support families in crisis. Heather is inclusive of diverse populations and takes a holistic approach to understanding human challenges.
Heather is thoughtful, articulate, deliberative and fair. She has worked as a lawyer, but she has also stood in the shoes of the client. We want judges who understand the people and community that will be impacted by their rulings. Heather’s breadth of community, legal and management experience makes her uniquely qualified for this office.
Opportunities to elect this type of candidate don't come around very often. She has our votes, and we hope she'll get yours, too.
— Mayor Terry Bellamy, Commissioner Holly Jones and City Council Member Esther Manheimer
