Fall’s coming—support Elaine

I’m writing to encourage your readers to vote for Elaine Lite for Asheville City Council this fall.

Elaine has lived here and raised her child here for 20 years. Like so many others, she’s appalled at the changes brought by wealthy out-of-town developers, including our sky-rocketing cost of living and the loss of so many of our mature trees. She is determined to rein in overdevelopment. She’s worked for many years to preserve our green space and parks for the next generation.

Please join me in working to elect Elaine Lite to City Council this fall. We need someone on Council who listens to us, the residents, instead of to the wealthy developers who come here from out of town, destroying our mountains and stressing our infrastructure [while] expecting to make big profits.

Elaine cares. She’s known for her work with several local environmental groups trying to slow the sprawl and degradation spoiling our lovely mountains. She supports affordable housing and a living wage. She has spoken out strongly for enforcing the UDO and existing environmental laws. She also puts out Critter Magazine, a publication I’ve long admired. Elect Elaine!
