Asheville Mayor Esther Manheimer shares this statement with our community Jan. 19:


“We have been getting questions about safety leading up to the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden, following FBI reports of the potential for national unrest and violence at state capitols.”


“We want to assure everyone that the City of Asheville is coordinating any needed law enforcement response at the local, state and federal level.”


“We are not aware of any threats in our area, but we are prepared to ensure the safety of our community for all residents.”
