The Buncombe County Commissioners’ meeting stretched long again. Added to the printed agenda was an award given by the Local Government Federal Credit Union in conjunction with county commissioners across the state. In addition to a dust collector, the county accepted a $1000 check from the credit union for its Pop-up Market program. The Pop-up Markets employ (figuratively speaking) community navigators to hook people up with services. Navigator Rasheeda McDaniels explained whether she gets a call for food or bleach or hair gel, she makes sure the needy party gets what they need within 24 hours. Whereas all in the room but one were emotional with joy for feeding the hungry, this one was frightened with visions of dependency.
