I am blessed to reside in Black Mountain. Asheville, however, is my home and it's where my heart will always reside, so her future is my concern.
If I lived in Asheville right now, I would want:
1) reasonable limits on development and a candidate for City Council who could and would demand such;
2) environmental wisdom and someone who is a visionary to lead the charge for a green future;
3) a Council member who will work to make sense of the confusing history and current situation of the water issues; and most of all
4) a leader who has a heart for all citizens, especially those facing challenges with affordable housing and earning enough income to survive.
If I were living in Asheville right now, I would want Cecil Bothwell on City Council.
