In one day, I had the opportunity to support local businesses while traveling along our city’s growing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. I witnessed current City Council members and candidates stand up for equality and justice. I had the opportunity to actively engage in the planning and development of our city. I did all of this with no worries about my safety and security. I give credit to Asheville’s long line of leaders for their role in bringing opportunity to our city. This election cycle, I will vote for leaders who will continue to create opportunity. I saw Gordon Smith walking with the We Do campaigners. Esther Manheimer was with us at the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. Gwen Wisler’s role in the cycling community was instrumental in building the facilities I used to make my way around town. I am confident that Esther, Gordon and Gwen will continue to move Asheville along a path of opportunity. They have my vote, and I hope they have yours.
