Letter of complaint regarding Thompson

In this October 2007 letter from Asheville City Attorney Bob Oast to attorney Paul Bidwell, Oast tells Bidwell to inform Reid Thompson that city staff has been instructed not to talk with him. The letter warns Thompson, on several occasions, “had behaved in a manner that has caused them to be concerned for their safety.” The city eventually banned Thompson from showing up at City Hall without an appointment. Thompson has had a long-running battle with the city over traffic at the Greenlife grocery store on Merrimon Avenue.
