We speak with Parker Sloan who is a candidate for the District 3 Buncombe County Commission seat in Asheville, North Carolina. He is also the Senior Community & Economic Development Manager at Cypress Creek Renewables, a national utility scale solar energy company here in Asheville where he works with local governments across the South in an effort to move our nation away from fossil fuels and toward a 21st century clean energy economy. Parker has also been a volunteer member on the Buncombe County Planning Board since 2014. He has been a committed volunteer for the Buncombe County Democratic Party for many years and managed Senator Terry Van Duyn’s campaign in 2014 and Quentin Miller’s campaign for Buncombe County Sheriff in 2018. We speak about voting in this pandemic era and how that will be impacted - especially with he being up for election in November. We speak about some of the larger changes that need to happen locally and on a state level and how he sees us approaching the new "normal' post Covid and what that means for Buncombe County. We also talk about the environment, climate change and his commitment to a new energy future.
