Candidate Biography (submitted by candidate) Val Applewhite served our country and retired from the Air Force after 20 years. With additional service with the U.S. Census Bureau and in her sixth year of service on the Fayetteville City Council, she is a 32-year public servant.

Her husband, Ken, is a Navy veteran and they have two sons. The core value of “Service before Self” is the foundation of her professional and personal career. Originally from New York City, her family chose Fayetteville as their home.
Candidate Statement Fayetteville is an amazing city with great potential. Our diverse citizenry is our greatest asset.

While we have had great success, we have many challenges that we must meet head on to make our All America City a community of choice and the envy of our state and nation.

By facing crime with an innovative and collaborative approach, we can be a safer community. However we must make every effort to assist our families, youth and children to be successful by connecting them to critical resources and healthy options.

Supporting local business with local tax dollars is a smart way to help existing business grow, prosper, and create more jobs. I believe we must become more aggressive in showcasing all that Fayeteville has to offer to attract more businesses.

I believe our vision must be bold and we must do things we’ve never done before to improve the quality of life in our community and focus on the needs of the many instead of the desires of a few.

I’m committed to being the Mayor for all of Fayetteville just as I served all of our great nation for more than 20 years. It’s Our Future. Our Community. Our Fayetteville.
Candidate Biography (submitted by candidate) Nat Robertson, grew up in Fayetteville, graduated from E.E. Smith and Elon University with a BA in Public Administration. He was a partner with his father in Robertson Jewelers and owned the General Nutrition Center stores on Raeford Road and Bragg Blvd. Robertson now works as a physician representative for a clinical laboratory.

He was one of the youngest council members ever elected to the Fayetteville City Council at the age of 26. Robertson says, "We will focus on policy and not politics; on our residents, not the power brokers and on doing the right things for the right reasons!”

Robertson says his priorities will include working with local businesses to promote and expand economic development. “Fayetteville has become a less friendly place to do business and live over the past decade. Business growth will promote a healthier and safer environment for ALL of our residents.”

Robertson wants to encourage builders and developers to come back to Fayetteville by offering a faster and fairer appeals process for the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and a more user friendly inspections process.

“We are losing millions of dollars in tax revenue every year when our own developers are going outside of our city limits to build.” Robertson continues, “This is money that could be used to fund and support more police officers, more parks, better roads and ultimately share the burden of operating the city.”
