Unanimous decisions in these divided days is rare. But that is what happened with the Asheville City Council, when they went behind closed doors on Tuesday with their lawyer. Add this to the turn that GOP strongman Carl Mumpower took by calling out the state GOP and standing up defiantly against their plans to take control of Asheville's water system, and transfer control the MSD.
Now, the fight is on. The City is standing strong against this over-reach, and we need to support them as the move forward.
The Governor has until Wednesday to sign it, veto it or ignore it. Ignoring it would mean that it passes into law, but without his signature.
The City will hold a press conference on Friday, May 10.
Will Puppet Pat sign? Will he cower away from the fight? Or will he chose to back down and VETO?
Tune in next time....
