Caleb Rudow is a Buncombe County native, Asheville High graduate, and the third generation of Rudows to call these beautiful mountains home. Caleb is proud to represent WNC in the NC General Assembly as a Democratic State House Representative for District 116 in Buncombe County. Caleb stands for what matters to working families in WNC- lowering the cost of living, providing better paid jobs for workers, ensuring access to quality healthcare, supporting teachers and our amazing school system, reducing inequality, protecting our civil liberties, and ensuring the next generation inherits the beautiful environment we enjoy here in WNC and makes this place so special.

Caleb has a masters degree in Global Policy Studies from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. He worked in grassroots international development as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Zambia and a researcher in Honduras. He is fluent in Spanish and Chinyanja and speaks passable Chinsenga and Hebrew. Asheville has always been in his heart, but he has served and organized all over the world. Caleb has dedicated his life to public service and at the heart of it all is his love for people, cultures, and working towards a common goal. He wants to work to improve WNC for all people, regardless of party, and believes his background in Spanish and cross cultural work will be an asset to reaching out to communities in the district, learning from them, and working to solve the issues they care about with common sense solutions.
