No town money spent to purchase public art

Written by 

To the Editor:

Recent political ads by the Waynesville-Haywood Concerned Citizens contain materially false representations.

There has never been any Waynesville town money or taxpayer money used for the public art pieces described in their ads. These works have been paid for in full by private donations, donations made after many hours of hard work on fundraising.

The Waynesville Public Art Commission (WPAC) is very fortunate to have Mayor Gavin Brown and the board of alderman’s full support in our effforts to make our lovely mountain comunity a place where our residents and visitors love to be. The public art is a wonderful addition to our serene mountain beauty and is made possible by all of those who wish to add to the beauty of Waynesville.

We are very sorry to see anyone supporting and endorsing people for public office who do not take the time to obtain the correct facts before having erroneous and misleading political ads and information published.

Jan Griffin

Chairman, Public Art Commission
