Dear <<First Name>> ~


Is that a really long time, or a really short time, or both?
It feels like both.
(And early voting is only 77 days away. 😮)

The good news is that we're gearing up to do ALL THE THINGS. And the reason we can do that is that amazing people are involved in this campaign. Let me introduce you to two of them.

Cheryl Orengo
Cheryl has stepped into the position of Campaign Coordinator, and I couldn't be more thrilled! She'll be coordinating volunteer activities, organizing house parties, and in general making sure that we reach as many prospective voters as we can in the next three months.

Cheryl has been active in political campaigns for three and a half decades. She worked with MoveOn in 2006 to defeat Rep. Charles Taylor in the Call for Change campaign. After that success, she was a volunteer regional organizer in Indiana and later led the Asheville MoveOn Council. In 2007, she organized a monthly gathering here in Asheville entitled “Dinner with Progressives,” which recently became “Breakfast with Progressives”. In 2016, she was a MoveOn canvass organizer for the “United Against Hate” Campaign. She's also worked as a “Volunteer Coordinator” for Democracy NC.

Ron Gordon
Ron Gordon is my intrepid Campaign Treasurer. His meticulous attention to detail ensures that our reports to the state about campaign finance are timely and accurate to the penny. He's also a whiz with Votebuilder and all sorts of data wrangling, which will help us make strategic decisions about where to direct our campaign's resources!

After a distinguished 25-year career in the Air Force, including managing worldwide aerospace maintenance and logistics, Ron settled down in Asheville. For four years he taught aspects of management, economics, and statistics at A-B Tech, and later was Director of General Services for the North Carolina Arboretum at UNC. He's since been a consultant focusing on climate change, and volunteering on the data team for the Buncombe County Democratic Party. 

I'm honored to have these two experienced and dedicated individuals on Team Tovish4AVL! Won’t you join us?

Here's a post on my website that recommends a couple of quick reads that address important issues —  like development and housing — facing Asheville. And another one covering a well-attended rally in support of our precious Pisgah-Nantahala National Forest.

And keep in mind:

Campaign T-Shirts! If you're volunteering or turning up for a campaign event, you can get one for $25 [unisex Small, Medium, Large in delightfully soft cotton]. If you DONATE $75 or more, I'll send you one!

Keep up with issues before Council and campaign activity at, our twitter feed @tovish4avl, and on Facebook

Thanks for your support and feedback; I'm so grateful you're on this journey with me.
