On July 2, the Asheville City Council will meet at the Banquet Hall of the U.S. Celluar Center (87 Haywood St, Asheville, NC 28801) to take public comment on a state-imposed law fundamentally changing how city residents elect their local leaders. Passed in June 2018, the bill would bump the next elections from 2019 to 2020 and change elections from an at-large vote for all seven council members to one in which five are elected by districts.
To help Asheville residents understand this issue (and get ready to respond), on Monday July 1, at 6 p.m., Democracy North Carolina and our partners will host a teach-in at the Arthur R. Edington Education & Career Center (133 Livingston St.). Local experts will provide the latest on Asheville’s districts and what could happen moving forward. Please join us for an evening of education and activation…and don’t forget to bring a friend!
