Write-in Cape for City Council

I was glad to read in this paper that Robin Cape will seek reelection to Asheville City Council as a write-in candidate in the general election. Not only do we need her voice for sustainability in this bioregion, her positive example of community dialogue and her experience on City Council, we need our political leaders to make wise decisions.

I have learned that it is wise to step back from outer work when we must care for ourselves, our parents and our children. Robin did that. I have also learned that after deciding "no" or "yes" to do something, we can — wisely — change our minds. Robin did that too.

I admire her for these very public decisions as well as for her past work and record. I want nothing less than elected leaders who will make wise, sustainable decisions for all our community!

In the general election, I will write in Robin Cape to return to City Council.
