Glenda P. Weinert is an Alexander resident and is now a Republican candidate for Buncombe County Commissioner in District 2. 

Glenda believes her professional experience in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, along with decades of volunteer work in the community, have prepared her to serve the people of Buncombe County.

She earned her B.S. in Accounting, and in the decades working as an employee and then as owner/operator of Little Beaver Childcare Centers, she continued her education to earn an MBA and a Doctorate in Business Administration with a focus on Leadership. She has also been serving as the NC Childcare Commission Chair for the past six years.

Glenda's service on local nonprofit Boards has ranged from Treasurer to Board Chair, and has included the NC Education Advocacy Council, Children’s Welfare League of Asheville, Junior League of Asheville, and the Asheville Tourist Children’s Fund.

Currently, Glenda is a small business franchise owner and an adjunct professor at both UNC Asheville and AB Tech where she teaches courses in accounting, business, and human resources. She and her husband of 28 years, Clint, have a family with two sons and their rescued dog, Chewey, who runs the house. 

I’m pleased that some of our current Commissioners have brought issues to light and provided the accountability and oversight that they were elected to provide. We are seeing more transparency and I want to serve in making sure that oversight, accountability, and transparency continues to be the focus and vision of the Commission. The taxpayers of Buncombe County deserve nothing less.
