Asheville City Council member Bill Russell has withdrawn from the race. Russell, in a statement released on the Scrutiny Hooligans political blog, wrote that "there would be no greater regret for me than if I was not there fully for my kids with my time and energy as they move through these most important years of their lives."
Sure, Council elections aren't partisan, but there are many Democrats in Asheville, and five of the nine candidates vying for City Council seats made their pitches last night, Aug. 2, at a Young Democrats meet-and-greet. The event was the first of the campaign season to get multiple candidates at the same event.
With one day left in the filing period, the Asheville City Council race is heating up, as the field has grown to eight candidates vying for three seats. After remaining publicly noncommittal for months, Council member Jan Davis filed for another run. Haw Creek Community Association President Chris Pelly and activist Lael Gray also officially joined the race.
With the incumbents still undecided on running for another term, four candidates — local engineer Mark Cates, Haw Creek Community Association President Chris Pelly, Timothy Sadler of RelyLocalAsheville and Greenway Commission Chair Marc Hunt — have so far emerged in this year's race for Asheville City Council.
After initially declaring he would run against Rep. Heath Shuler as an independent candidate, Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell has again changed course. Campaign materials released on his website yesterday revealed he will run against Shuler in the Democratic primary, and an announcement this morning made it official.
