Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    huh…trying to be funny…fail. ok, now she’s running for Terry Van Duyn NC Senate seat. WHAT are her leadership skills ? What is her best work with the city??? anything?

    Julie Mayfield was 25% of the vote that granted the conditional zoning request. Gwen Wisler voted against more hotels than anyone on Council except Brian Haynes. Why is Julie Mayfield being singled out?
    Kinda like Terry VanDuyn being hell responsible for the unanimous Senate vote on SB813. Whatever happened to full accounting of the story? Oh, Julie is the swing vote on the district elections (which are here to stay)

    I somehow lost Wainscott in the fog. But it looks like Julie sold her soul to the devil.
