Courier-Tribune Interviews Council Candidates

Six vie for four seats on Asheboro City Council – Courier-Tribune

Excerpt:

“Name two things you think the city council should focus on (or continue to focus on): 1) A top-burner issue apart from the economy; and 2) a smaller, less-pressing matter that is near and dear to you. What should the city do (or continue to do) in each case? And why?”

“Greene: I think the city should focus additionally on infrastructure. Our city streets need repair. The city council is currently looking at these issues, but the work needs to be done. As the mayor has stated, it may take a bond referendum to help pay for the repair of our city streets. Walking trails and bike lanes and a dog park are other issues the city needs to explore. I believe that recently Mayor Smith stated “Asheboro will have a dog park.” A smaller issue may be to try to preserve more historical buildings. Near and dear to my heart is the tethering of animals. The city needs to continue to be vigilant to this issue. As a Letter Carrier, I am aware when a dog is tied for long periods of time they become aggressive and if that animal gets loose then any citizen or mail carrier is in danger. Another issue with tethering I came across was a new family in Asheboro tied their terrier to a line; it got loose and made it to the 220-Bypass. It was hit by a car, damaging its ability to move. I put the animal in my car and drove to the clinic in Greensboro to save the dog. I called him Rascal, not know his name. I held his head in one hand so he could breathe; after arriving, he expired. Please don’t tether.”
