Office of Equity & Inclusion fills out staff

This is just a poor excuse to make the Asheville elite seem like they’re doing something constructive for the minority communities by providing useless high-paying jobs. If you really want equity, how about a grocery store in the food deserts of Livingston, Oakley, and Montford (and don’t give me Wal-Mart unless you’re willing to lug your groceries uphill for 2 miles). There’s a lot of minorities who don’t even have reasonable access to anything more than a convenience store, and forget about fresh food.

Also, I might add; that’s a department budget of over a million dollars to oversee hundreds of functions (and millions of dollars) that the City is required to bid and award based on price (and price alone). You can be the most excluded minority in all of North America, and a North Carolina municipality still can’t award you a contract unless you are, in fact, the lowest bidder. So, Asheville citizens may want to inquire how an Equity and Inclusion department is going to change that dynamic without wandering into some illicit or illegal activity. The same state law that governs bidding also states that collusion (rigging a bid to favor someone or something) is just as illegal. Other than that, it’s just another set of big fat government jobs that doesn’t really have a customer or a deliverable, and isn’t really accountable to anyone other than a politician.

Worried you can't get a mortgage in time? Ribbon will buy the home you want for you

Ribbon announced Thursday that it raised $225 million in a combination of debt and equity financing. According to the company, it plans to use the money to expand into 10 new markets by the end of 2019 and more markets after that.

The company launched in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has since expanded into Cary and Asheville, North Carolina and Fort Mill and Indian Land, South Carolina.

The company said that it is “focused on markets where homebuyers are having the hardest time securing their new homes and face stiff local competition from investors and corporate buyers.”

The company claims that its process gives homebuyers a greater than a 90% chance of having their offer accepted, while also saving thousands of dollars in cash discounts and receiving a 100% on-time closing.

“Buying a home is a milestone to be celebrated and enjoyed. However, if you are a first-time homebuyer or you need to sell your existing home prior to buying a new home, the current homebuying process is an intimidating and stressful experience,” Ribbon CEO Shaival Shah said.

Do you support Congress's bailout plan, or the House Republicans' bailout plan?

Here's the bullet points directly from the House GOP plan:

* Rather than providing taxpayer funded purchases of frozen mortgage assets, we should adopt a mortgage insurance approach to solve the problem.

I like the Republican's plan a lot better than the Democrat's plan, but what I really want is for the people who got loans they should not have received to go bankrupt and the bankers who issued the loans prosecuted for fraud.
