Letter: Offer input on Community Bill of Rights

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Who decides: people or corporations? When it comes to protecting our land, air and water, the people of Asheville need a law that guarantees our rights.

Members of Community Roots (www.cmroots.com), with legal help, have drafted an ordinance, and your comments are sought. Please attend one of these public comment sessions [all in Asheville].

• Monday, Oct. 23, 6-8 p.m., Kenilworth Center, 4 Chiles Ave.
• Friday, Oct. 27, 6-8 p.m., Jubilee! Community (enter at 101 Patton Ave.).
• Wednesday, Nov. 8, 6-8 p.m., Arthur R. Edington Education and Career Center Community Room, 133 Livingston St.

    LOL, it isn’t the state government getting on your way. It’s your gods on council who get free passes simply for calling themselves progressive. When in fact they have allowed big corporations to build up the area and giving them freebies to do so. So you all keep looking to Raleigh as your scapegoats when the real people in control laugh at you behind your backs.

      That’s what VOTING is for. We have the right to choose our representatives, but that only works when we vote and encourage everyone we know to do the same. Identify the progressives you support. Talk about them . Write letters here about them. And Get Out the VOTE!
