Whilden & Moffitt – Closing StatementsBy
Jane Whilden and her opponent, Tim Moffitt, were part of a jam-packed Chamber of Commerce candidate forum at which 14 candidates for various office appeared. Mtn. X released this video of the closing statements from Ms. Whilden and Mr. Moffitt. Click here to see the accompanying article and a host of other videos. Really. Do it!
One interesting note about Rep. Moffitt’s comments about local control – They’re inaccurate. City-County relations are the best they’ve been in memory, and everyone in those bodies agrees that Asheville has been an excellent steward of the water resource. Rep. Moffitt is the one putting constituencies in opposition to one another. There was no conflict over the current management of the water resource. Reinterpreting reality is his right, but the facts don’t change based on his words.
