Home – Donna Ensley for Buncombe County Commission – District 3

Donna Ensley for County Commission

I love OUR community and I have a heart for service.
I will serve you with integrity as YOUR next District 3 Commissioner.
I ask for your vote in the November 6th general election.

My career and past experiences have taught me how to lead and work with others—solving problems through strategic planning, analysis, and building consensus.  

I retired in the fall of 2016, after working for several years as chief development officer at MANNA FoodBank. I was instrumental in leading MANNA through a successful 3.4 million dollar campaign that changed the scope and breadth of the foods they can accept and deliver. I previously helped prepare and implement successful capital campaigns for Habitat for Humanity, Daniel Boone Council, First Presbyterian Church, and Pack Square Park. I have served on several boards, and as president of the YWCA, Helpmate, and the Rotary Club of Asheville.

I believe that my passion for truth and fairness to all makes me the ideal candidate to represent the interests of all our citizens—rich and poor, young and old, working, retired, and other-abled.  

I have served on many church committees and as a church elder, and I am actively involved in the Emmaus community and The Rotary Club of Asheville. My career life includes restaurant management, dental hygienist, and am recently retired from a successful career as a fundraising professional, achieving the WNC Outstanding Fundraising Professional award in 2014.
