pisgah legal services
As the Dec. 23 deadline for open enrollment under the new healthcare law looms, local nonprofit Pisgah Legal Services is holding a navigation clinic this Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. Volunteer "navigators" will be on hand "to help people explore their options for health insurance and subsidies to cover the cost of insurance through the Affordable Care Act."
Multiple complaints about mold, rot, and other woes at a Merrimon Avenue apartment complex earlier this year casts doubt on the ability of local governments to deal with what many see as a serious health issue, leaving tenants feeling powerless to get their grievances addressed. And with the Asheville area having some of the highest housing costs in the state and one-third of its working population earning low wages, many local renters face similar issues.
In this edition of Local Matters — the Xpress weekly news podcast — reporter David Forbes talks about City Council member Bill Russell dropping out of his bid for re-election, Pisgah Legal Services efforts to increase access to legal help for the poor, and the recent claim by NC State Sen. James Forrester that Asheville is a "cesspool of sin."
