About The Candidates'
Asheville resident Adam Baylus is helping his fellow registered
voters to choose a new Mayor and new City Council members. For ten
weeks, he is publishing The Candidates'
Forum. Area organizations are helping with this effort,
including Fund for Investigative Reporting and Editing (FIRE) and
Mountain Area Information Network (MAIN)
(you may wish to participate in The Candidates' Forum online
discussion hosted by MAIN). You can also e-mail
Adam Baylus with a question you want to ask the candidates.
The Forum is simply a weekly compilation of statements by
all (or nearly all) of the candidates. These statements are presented
unedited and uncensored--the candidates' only limitation is to keep
to 300 words or less.
FIRE is posting this site for The Candidates'
Forum as a public service to voters. FIRE is a nonprofit
organization dedicated to increasing public dialogue and access
to information about important community issues. If you like, you
can use the links at the left side of the page to learn more about
FIRE and its online community media archive (search box at the top
of the page). FIRE does not publish The Candidates' Forum, so please
contact Adam Baylus if you
have any questions about content, delivery, advertising, etc., or
if you have any feedback or questions which are not related to this
FIRE does not endorse any of the candidates. The content does not
necessarily represent the views of FIRE.
