Of all the important topics in our community we must be reminded that safety & security are part of a person's basic needs. This principle is clearly demonstrated in Maslow's Hierarchy of needs as a foundation piece and one of the first duties of government.
As we address issues of feeding the hungry, working with homeless programs, addressing issues of affordable housing, greenspaces, education and development, honoring our seniors, creating job opportunities, all of these efforts MUST be paired with Safety & Security. Public Safety and other core services must be supported while being held accountable.
I am the only candidate with first hand knowledge and deep experience in Public Safety.... already proven while protecting Buncombe County's citizens.
Pair that with almost three decades of management experience & education, with a heavy focus in budget management, I will get the job done.
