    (from the Mountain eXpress)

    for Mayor:

    Esther Manheimer
    Occupation, political experience: Attorney, current Vice Mayor
    Statement: "Our challenges and opportunities have multiplied, and I see that our need for inclusive, inspired, strategic leadership is perhaps greater than ever. Because I am committed to providing that leadership, I will ask for the people's support to be elected as Asheville's next mayor."

    John Miall
    Occupation, political experience: Consultant. Former risk management director, city of Asheville.
    Statement: "I have a passion to return to public service and lead the City of Asheville as its Mayor. I spent a lifetime building relationships and taking leadership roles to achieve success, both locally and nationally. I want to bring those skills to City Hall where I believe they are needed."

    Martin Ramsey
    Occupation, political, experience: works at Early Girl Eatery, activist
    Statement: "Given the circumstances surrounding our city in dealing with a hostile General Assembly, the rewriting of our local election system, corporate welfare, police misconduct, expensive housing, and an over investment in an ecologically and economically unsustainable tourist economy, I could not allow this race to proceed without a meaningful debate on these issues."

    City Council doesn't have a primary because there are three open positions and five people running.  Had there been more than six there would have been, or so it was explained to me.

    And yes, I voted today.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
    I wish I was a moron, MY GOD, Perhaps I am!
