I will work to promote fairness, truth and goodwill in all Buncombe County’s decision making and I will be accountable to our citizens. My priorities are education, infrastructure collaboration, environment and affordable housing. To succeed in education, Buncombe County needs to invest in early childhood development, youth, teachers, and technology.
We need to work collaboratively with the city, Buncombe county and municipalities strategically planning for inevitable future development and we must invest in infrastructure now to address current and emerging needs. We have to emphasize and build on our assets to attract quality employers who will diversify our workforce.
We need to insist on a living wage for our citizens. And finally, we need to advocate for environmentally-responsible development and protect the resources that make Buncombe County a desirable place to work, live, and play.
