    Yes, fight this with all the energy you can muster. Anything less is capitulation.

    It would be horribly irresponsible for the Asheville City Council to not resist this by every means available.

    where’s the love and sharing from the ‘ALL ONE’ crowd ? Hmm???

    Have ANY of you asked City Council why they REFUSED to negotiate NOR accept the $57 MILLION offer from MSD ??? that’s $57 MILLION city missed out on.

    democrat ‘leadership’ is an oxymoron.
