    LOL 75% of who? Oh, you mean the 25% of the population that participated in the last election.

    I don’t understand why anybody would be upset about having equal representation based on where you live. I’m tired of having people represent me who know absolutely nothing about my needs in West Asheville. It will be nice to have fresh ideas and people on the council.

    The map looked a bit gerrymandered to me in the southern part of East Asheville, and it can only get worse, that said, where the center is liberal, districts would get real leftists a representative as well as conservatives, people like Martin Ramsey will get in as well as distant cousin Nathan.
