Local Matters: The lopsided fundraising battle over the A-B Tech tax referendum

In this podcast, Xpress reporter Jake Frankel talks about a recently released report detailing the fundraising efforts—and the lopsided results of those efforts—of groups on both sides of the proposed 1/4 cent sales tax increase to support A-B Tech. Other updates include a preview of tonight’s Buncombe County Commission meeting. Hosted by Margaret Williams.

Podcast produced by Steve Shanafelt. The theme music is “jam band spy song” by E. Lee.
