The BIG questions facing Woodfin...

??What do we want our town to look like in 5 years? 10 years?

??Should Woodfin be a bedroom community or should we recruit big employers? Or both?

??Should Woodfin develop a town center? If so, where should we locate it?

"I promise to hold public hearings on these topics and more!" - Jim McAllister


Jim McAllister is originally from Alabama, but decided long ago that he wanted to settle in the mountains of Western North Carolina. His childhood memories of camping along the cold local streams never left him, and in 2018 he relocated to Asheville, then built a house in Woodfin. He currently serves the Town of Woodfin as a member of the Board of Adjustment.

Jim received his BS Degree in Commerce and Business from the University of Alabama and is an avid college sports fan. His 35+ year career in sales management focused on the technology sector, mostly software and hardware to banks and credit unions. His work allowed him to travel to all 50 states, even living in Honolulu for a year as a project manager managing employees in Canada and Guam. The many lessons Jim learned in project management, negotiation, budgeting, and human resources will help him better serve the community as a Woodfin Town Commissioner.

Jim was Moe Davis' Treasurer for the NC11 Congressional race in 2020. He serves as a Director of the SebastianStrong Foundation, where he heads the Medical Advisory Board that selects pediatric cancer research projects to fund. He volunteers as much time as possible to the Woodfin Elementary School. Like you, Jim wants to help Woodfin be the town we can all be proud of.
