Without the consent or approval of Buncombe County’s citizens and representatives, Rep. Tim Moffitt has proposed to take property that does not belong to the state. This government ambush from Raleigh amounts to a gross abuse of power. We appeal to your sense of fairness and ask you to consider the costs of Rep. Moffitt’s actions: if the state can take our water, then they can take the water in your districts. Please don’t annex our water.
