2022 Get There AVL – Primary Candidate Forum
Recorded Wednesday, May 4th 6pm – 8pm at Wedge at Foundation (5 Foundy St Ste 10, Asheville, NC 28801)
Facebook Event: Get There AVL – Primary City Council Candidate Forum
Candidates for City Council and Mayor were on stage for a live event featuring a 3-part structured program at the Wedge at Foundation. We’ve been receiving suggested questions from our members all week and this forum is going to be good!
AoB’s candidate forums continue to be some of the most fun, friendly, well attended, and educational public meetings during each election cycle. Both voters and candidates benefit from our live events where we dive deep into transportation issues. We hold these forums each election cycle. AoB does not endorse individual candidates.

Our event was streamed live and our program had 3 sections:
- Part 1, Each Candidate three minutes to speak
- Not recorded: Each candidate at a table talking to constituents
- Part 2: Candidates return to the mic to discuss what they learned
Thank you for all who participated! It was great to have a packed room and see such a strong push for change to our infrastructure.
Summary of our event
One of the most effective ways to enact positive change in our everyday lives is to engage in dialogue with our representatives in government at the city and county level. Every election cycle, Asheville on Bikes holds public candidate forums to discuss current issues in transportation policy with those running for city council.
Below are links to events, candidate Q&A, and other information surrounding these candidate forums.
