Local elections often have more impact on your day to day life than elections at higher levels. Here is more from Asheville City Council candidate, Kim Roney. Interviewed by host, Tina White.
Asheville City Council candidate
“Kim Roney is a piano teacher, service-industry worker, and community advocate who walks, bikes, and rides the bus here in Asheville. She was a founding member of 103.3 AshevilleFM, where she served as Station Manager and covered City Council meetings for the AFM News Hour; currently serves on Asheville’s Multi-Modal Transportation Commission and Transit Committee; and has attended City Council meetings for 5 years.
Working alongside neighbors, Kim understands so many of us are struggling to make ends meet on stagnant wages as the cost of living rises, while the tourism industry strains our natural resources and infrastructure. The work we must do to ensure a resilient community prepared for climate change includes urgent action to take better care of the planet and each other.”
