Endorsement for Catori Swann-Candidate for Buncombe County Commissioner-District 3. I have known and worked with Catori Swann for the past 2 years. Catori leads by example with a tendency at meetings to  listen and understand the positions of his colleagues before advancing his own recommendations. His strengths are discipline, restraint, and an ability to achieve consensus from divergent views. Although incisive, he is relentlessly gracious, calm, and proactive in the face of adverse circumstances.

Endorsement for Catori Swann, Candidate for Buncombe County Commissioner District 3 -

Catori Swann is a man of his word.  He stands by what he says he can do, and he does it with integrity and complete dedication.  He doesn’t make promises he can’t keep, and doesn’t fabricate stories of “idealized” goals.  He works from the foundation of point of, “what would make this the best it can be?  What do I have to work with?  What do I need to get to make it work excellently, and what is the budget I have to make this happen?”  Catori knows how to work with everyone, and is a great collaborator.  He stands by his commitments, and is loyal and compassionate.
