I was disappointed when I heard that Robin Cape was not going to run for City Council: It would have been a tremendous loss to Asheville to not have her bringing her leadership to the city. She is smart, tough, really understands the issues and the city — and has a smart, comprehensive vision for the future of Asheville.
I understood her personal reasons for not running, but am glad she changed her mind. I hope that lots of people will write her in come October.
