Asheville water belongs to Asheville

I applaud former Mayor Leni Sitnick's stand against the forces in Raleigh that would rob Asheville of its water rights without due compensation. Rep. Tim Moffitt — he who was re-elected only because of gerrymandering — has been the stalking horse for the takeover of Asheville's rights by the corporate drones whom he represents. He should not prevail.

Asheville's water belongs to Asheville, not to any "water board" that will milk taxpayers for Moffitt's profit and political future.

Shame on Rep. Moffitt. Shame on all those to attempt to thwart the will of the people in the name of money and power.
