Around 50 Western North Carolina residents signed up to speak at the July 7 public hearing at A-B Tech’s Ferguson Auditorium about General Assembly’s proposed Congressional redistricting map, and overwhelmingly, those residents spoke out against the proposal. Many expressed concerns that under the proposal most of the City of Asheville would be removed from its long-held position in the heart of the state’s 11th district and placed instead in the 10th, a move some speakers labeled gerrymandering. Be sure to check out Xpress reporter Jake Frankel’s report from the meeting for complete coverage of the night’s proceedings.
