Do something about the four following issues that will improve the local economy. Consider that more than 17,000 people in Asheville are out of work, Asheville is the seventh worst in the country for hunger, and the cost of living is unreasonably high compared to surrounding cities.

  • Housing cost in Greenville, SC is 26% less than Asheville, NC., 19% less than Charlotte, NC, and 16% less than Knoxville, TN.
  • Utilities cost in Greenville, SC is 20% less than Asheville, NC., 19% less than Charlotte, NC, and 16% less than Knoxville, TN.
  • Healthcare cost in Greenville, SC is 6% less than Asheville, NC., and 16% less than Knoxville, TN (healthcare costs in Charlotte, NC is more than Asheville, but most of the other categories are still significantly less than Asheville).
  • Grocery items in Greenville, SC cost 2% less than Asheville, NC., 7% less than Charlotte, NC, and 13% less than Knoxville, TN.
