Help Defeat Moffitt Today!

May 25, 2012

Since I last wrote, the Legislative Research Commission, the N.C. General Assembly body which authorized Tim Moffitt’s “study committee,” passed the committee’s recommendations and legislation on to the General Assembly. In the meantime, the local Metropolitan Sewage District (MSD) announced that it will raise sewage rates on businesses and residents 2.5% this summer. You’ll recall that Moffitt’s official line is that he wants the Asheville water system to be seized and given to MSD to protect customers from rate increases.  Yet, MSD’s rate increases have outpaced the Asheville water systems for years. So either Moffitt wants to privatize our water and this is the first step (which he denies); or he’s doing special favors for Henderson County politicos (the only winners in Moffitt’s proposed legislation); or he’s trying to create an imaginary wedge issue to rile up county voters. Do you think it’s okay to play games with our water?

Moffitt is up for reelection in November, and his challenger, Jane Whilden, is going to need all the help she can get given the backing Moffitt has from outside extremist groups. I urge you to come out next Tuesday to meet Jane Whilden and volunteer for her campaign.  Let’s do all we can to dethrone the man the media has dubbed Sly King Moffitt. Here are the details:

Jane’s Grassroots/Volunteer Kick-off Event.  Meet Jane and learn how you can get involved with the campaign.

Tuesday, May 29th from 6-8 p.m.

Buncombe County Democratic Party Headquarters at 951 Old Fairview Rd., Asheville, 28803
