A flier funded by local businessman Chris Peterson and bearing a mocking, photoshopped picture of Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell, encouraging voters to back Council member Jan Davis and candidate Mark Cates has led to a condemnation by an advocacy group and public criticism. Davis has released a statement asserting he is unhappy with his inclusion in the flier, noting, "I do not believe in trickery and dirty campaigning." Cates, meanwhile, has released a statement saying he understands' Peterson's view.
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.
