Why A-B Tech needs your support

I have worked at A-B Tech since 1992. I see the difference A-B Tech makes in people’s lives. If you have not taken a class at A-B Tech, you probably know someone who has. And now I am asking for your help. On Nov. 8, vote for A-B Tech by voting for the last item on the ballot. You won’t see A-B Tech on the ballot; by law, the item will be listed as a county sales-and-use tax.

The cost is low; 2.5 cents on a $10 purchase. Medicine, gas, services and most groceries are not affected by this tax. According to the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, visitors shopping in the county will pay more than 30 percent of the tax. But the benefit to A-B Tech is critical. This money will be used for renovation, improvement and expansion of educational facilities in Buncombe County. So please, on Nov. 8, exercise your right — vote for A-B Tech.
