Mayor Miall has a nice ring to it

If you drive a car, own property and pay taxes of any kind, buy groceries, balance your checkbook, and a myriad of other things ordinary working class people do on a daily basis, then I appeal to you.

John Miall needs your vote to become Asheville's new mayor in November.

John has the experience, desire and the inner strength to lead us in and through these financially unstable times. I personally believe he will do so without further raising our taxes. Matter of fact, many of us will be counting on Mayor Miall for a good old-fashioned, all-American, Wal-Mart-style rollback of the present tax rates.

If you long to see fiscal responsibility restored to local government, John Miall is your only choice on the ballot.

This election is a critical one for Asheville and the surrounding area. The outcome will either be a bright new beginning, or the onset of an even bleaker period for thousands of hardworking, taxpaying citizens and retirees who live and work in Asheville.

Please don't sit by and let a bad situation become even worse.

Get out and vote for John Miall on Nov. 5 [and] ask your friends and family to as well!
