Candidate profile: Anthony M. Woods, Charleston City Council, At Large

Anthony M. Woods (L)

Charleston

Education: University of Charleston and West Virginia State State University

Occupation: Certified Public Accountant

Gazette Opinion:

Q: Do you support evidence-based programs to protect public health during the drug abuse crisis?

A: Charleston lacks the resources to support a needle exchange program. We must fight the opioid epidemic, but we can’t accept children stuck with stray needles. We can’t accept property crime. It’s time to put residents that are suffering first and support treatment programs that don’t endanger others.

Q: Would you support expanding the bike pathway along Kanawha Boulevard?

A: Showcasing Charleston’s potential as an incredible place to live, work and play is a priority. I support expanding the bike pathway along Kanawha Boulevard, and I recommend we find any state or federal grant assistance available to ease the cost to Charleston’s residents.

Daily Mail Opinion:

Q: How should the city address the issue of criminal transient individuals?

A: I support enhanced community policing and neighborhood watches, removing roadblocks to demolish abandoned houses, and programs that return criminal transients to families back home. We must focus on violence, theft and property crime — not petty crime.

Q: Has the city of Charleston become a better or worse place to live in the past five years? How so?

A: Charleston’s getting better and stronger. Our thriving small business community supports local arts and culture. People of all ages work to make their communities strong. We know our neighbors. Our problems must be fixed — now — but we stand strong as one family beside the Kanawha River.
