The Coalition of Asheville Neighborhoods has collaborated with Bailey Stockwell of East Asheville for Safety and Truth in interviewing office candidates running in the May 17th primary.  Twenty-one of the 32 candidates consented or were able to be interviewed.  None of the candidates had access to the questions before the interview, so viewers are better able to judge how well the candidates are prepared to deal with the issues confronting Asheville and Buncombe County.

The interviews are on YouTube.  To access them, click on the following link: Videos

Here is a chance for voters to view many of the candidate “unembellished.” If you scroll down below the individual interview and you can “Like” it and/or share, both of which we hope you will do.  By sharing you can get this important candidate information out to your friends and contacts about those running in what may be the most important local election in Asheville’s history.
