In the years that I have known Cecil Bothwell, he has proven himself to be a man of high principle, intelligence and drive. He is well versed in local issues from his many years as an investigative reporter and editor, and from his decades of living and working here in Asheville.
Cecil has always stood for fairness and openness in public affairs, and has never been shy in addressing his concerns for Asheville and the greater community. Knowledgeable, well-rounded and dedicated, Cecil deserves our support in his bid for election to City Council. Cecil Bothwell is the common-sense candidate.
