If you want to have a chance to stop developers from paving that last, sumptuous green space in your neighborhood, vote for Cecil Bothwell for Asheville City Council. If you want to really try to save ridge lines, Asheville's quality of life and our basic resources of clean air and water — vote Bothwell. If you deeply need to try to kill the root causes of poverty rather than launch high-profile campaigns that actually do little — vote Bothwell. If you fervently long that your job have a chance of becoming more humane and secure — vote Bothwell.
I've known Mr. Bothwell for 20 years and he's always taken consistent, brave and eloquent stands on the above progressive issues. He will not sound like a deep environmentalist during the campaign, and then plant superficial LEEDS lilies around the casket of our ecology when elected.
