I'm a guy. My socks don't often match, my shirts need ironing and I probably drink too much beer — but I work hard and provide for my kids. I also bench-press more than own body weight and always choose the hottest available hot sauce. When it comes to politicians, I'm typically pretty skeptical of them, especially ones that change their minds about whether they want to run or not. It's wishy-washy.
Robin Cape did that. However, I happen to know that, in her case, it was because she was going through a tough time and trying to provide a new home for her daughter after a difficult divorce. Robin works her tail off for Asheville and does a lot of good for those of us who prize a high quality of life.
Okay, so she changed her mind. I, for one, am willing to give her a mulligan. Go, Robin!
