Gordon Smith for Asheville City CouncilBy
Good morning, Hooligans. I’m happy to announce that I’m running for re-election to Asheville’s City Council. Click here to find the website.
Thank you for all of your support through my first term on Asheville’s City Council. We’ve accomplished a lot together. These steps have taken us closer and closer to being an affordable, sustainable community with a strong middle class. We’re not there yet, and policy decisions forced upon us from Raleigh aren’t making things easier for anybody.
I’m running for re-election to City Council because I believe we can grow Asheville’s middle Class. We can continue to support the creation of living wage jobs and accelerate our medium and small businesses in new ways. We can have more affordable housing, a more comprehensive multimodal transportation network, and stronger food systems. We can invest in our city, creating conditions for a healthy economic future.
Asheville is an aspirational city. We aspire to sustainability in our economy, our environment, and our society. We are people who work hard to make a living and to make a difference. Together we can continue on a path to prosperity that gives everyone the opportunity for a great life.
