I am writing to support the candidacy of Lael Gray for City Council.
I have known Lael as we were both serving on the Board of Building Bridges. I have seen her creativity, energy and commitment to making Asheville a more welcoming and pleasant town. She has shown her ability to collaborate with others in working toward a sustainable neighborhood as well as an inclusive community. She is able to work across differences and to sort out the most important issues from those that are not as relevant. I hope that you will take the time to vote for her in the coming weeks. Don’t forget that early voting has already begun.
