Are we going to lose Lael Gray’s unique independent voice because she doesn’t have the financial backing of an organized party? Lael Gray functions as a community-based advocate, with commitment, authenticity, conviction and dedication. In a nonpartisan election for Asheville City Council, she is truly an independent, representing the citizens of Asheville, over and above the interests of a few power blocs.
Her background is rich in community activism. She has been a teacher, director and board member of educational facilities. She has represented her neighborhood in its successful efforts to reduce the negative impacts of the I-26 connector. And she has demonstrated her ability by founding and managing several successful businesses. I support the election of this woman to City Council. When you vote for your three new City Council members, remember this skilled woman. Vote for Lael Gray.
