Here’s the message from the Buncombe County Republican Party via the group’s email newsletter:
Below is information on the public forum regarding important issues in the Buncombe County area. Republicans are continually lacking representation at these public forums and we encourage you to come out learn about the issues lending your voice to the solutions.
We must be active in the day to day issues dealing with Buncombe County and the City of Asheville. Please take the time to learn or we will continue to take a back seat on important issues affecting our area.
