This editorial board endorses Mark Kleinschmidt for re-election because his consistent, intelligent, moral leadership has made him an exemplary mayor.
Voters can be assured Kleinschmidt cares about and fights for the values they hold sacred.
Since 2009, Kleinschmidt has fought for this community to be open-minded, diverse, affordable and environmentally responsible, and he has done so valiantly within the limits of his office.
He exhibits a mastery of the issues and an intimate knowledge of the workings of the town and its residents, all while being an articulate champion of its values.
In contrast to charges from his critics, Kleinschmidt has proven himself an able listener, and his record of collaboration with UNC is strong.
