Following the noon Friday filing deadline, candidates are now set for this fall’s races for Asheville mayor, City Council and other municipal elections in Buncombe County.
Four people, including incumbent Esther Manheimer, will compete in a mayoral primary. The newest to file were former Asheville Housing Authority board chairman Jonathan Glover and 2013 candidate and former occupy protester Martin Ramsey who both signed up Friday.
In the council race, two incumbents and 10 challengers will face off in the Oct. 10 primaries. The latest to enter the race are Sheneika E. Smith, who does community outreach work for the nonprofit Green Opportunities; public transit activist Kim Roney; Vice Mayor Gwen Wisler; and musician and arts advocate Andrew Fletcher.
