Kim Roney for Asheville City Council 2020 Launch Party

Kim Roney is a piano teacher, service-industry worker, and community advocate who walks, bikes, and rides the bus in 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; 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. This means we need:

DEEPLY AFFORDABLE HOUSING through cooperative & creative solutions!

A fare-free, REGIONAL TRANSIT NETWORK, because transit is at the intersection of equitable access, economic mobility, and environmental sustainability.

A PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY process that removes barriers to participation while ensuring equity in decision-making around our budget, planning, and policies.

From Kim: “As a community, we are woven together, and need each other, so I invite you to join me in strengthening our community bond. We can and must Be ‘Bout it Being Better. Check your voter ID and registration today!”
