DAVID KING: BUNCOMBE COUNTY COMMISSIONER/DISTRICT 3



It has been an honor and education for David King to serve on the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners.  David was elected in 2012 to the first Board of Commissioners comprised of representatives to the Board from each of three county districts.  District 3 consists of the western third of the county; including parts running from South Buncombe, through Enka/Candler, parts of Leicester, all the way to Sandy Mush.
