Hi. My name is Jonathan Wainscott and I am running for Mayor of Asheville. Four years ago the Mayor’s seat was “open” when Mayor Terry Bellamy chose not to run for re-election. In 2013, three people stepped up to say, “I can do the job”. Now, after her first term as Mayor, Esther Manheimer faces opposition by 3 candidates who are saying, “I can do a better job”. I am one of those candidates.
