Brian Caskey

Incumbent Brian Caskey faces challenger Sandra Goode in the race for the Mills River Town Council District 1 seat in the Nov. 2 municipal general election. 

James Cantrell is running against incumbent Brian Kimball in the race for the District 2 seat. Dennis Grass, who also filed for the District 2 seat and is on the ballot, has since withdrawn from the race.

Shannon Gonce is running unopposed for the District 3 seat after Mayor Chae Davis decide not to seek re-election. 

Other races on the ballot are Hendersonville mayor and Fletcher mayor, along with council seats in Hendersonville, Fletcher, Flat Rock and Laurel Park. 

Caskey, Kimball, Goode and Cantrell were sent questions from the Times-News. Caskey’s answers are below.  

Why did you decide to run for a seat on council?

I have served on the Town Council for the past four years, including the last two as mayor pro tem. During that time, I have been a ferocious advocate for forward-thinking policies that will allow Mills River to protect its green spaces and rural lifestyle.
