Pat Cothran is simply outstanding

It is telling that the Asheville Citizen-Times chose not to lend its support to the incumbent in the register of deeds race, though the publication heartily endorsed him just 18 months ago.

Reisinger was appointed to the position because he previously worked in a couple of campaigns. He has not held a job in the private sector or contributed to the economic climate of Buncombe County. Now he is facing a challenger who has always been part of the fabric of our mountains.

Pat Cothran is not seeking this position as merely a well-paid stepping stone to a political career. She is a highly qualified candidate whose extensive educational background and experience in business and real estate gives her the credentials to lead the register of deeds office. Pat is a native daughter of Buncombe County who has built a business, employed local people, contributed taxes and donated time and money to charitable causes. She exhibits true leadership, ethos and passion. Through those attributes Pat will bring excellence to the office and will honor the trust of our citizens, both past and present.

True qualifications matter more than political affiliation in this important race. Upon comparing the candidates’ credentials, experience and desire to serve, the voters have a clear choice. Pat Cothran is quite simply the outstanding candidate.
