According to the State Board of Elections, Buncombe District Attorney Ron Moore filed to run for a seventh term last Friday, Feb. 21. As of this morning, Moore's name still does not appear on the local list of candidates, but board staff confirm that it will. So far, Moore has no challengers.
With about a week left to file, no one has stepped into the Buncombe County District Attorney's race, including incumbent Ron Moore, leaving the shape of the race for one of the county's most important offices unclear. Moore's staying mum about his plans, the local Republican party chair says he doesn't know of any GOP challengers and the local Democratic Party chair has no information to offer.

Part of Judge Bradley Letts' written order dismissing the evidence room open records lawsuit filed by a local media coalition (including Xpress) has been filed. The order dismisses the part of the lawsuit against the Buncombe County District Attorney's office on the technical grounds that it was misnamed in the lawsuit.
More than two months ago, Xpress requested a copy of the audit of the Asheville Police Department's evidence room from District Attorney Ron Moore. We have received no reply. According to attorneys from the North Carolina Press Association, the audit should be public record, and Moore's behavior violates the state's open records law.
The audit of the Asheville Police Department evidence room was completed Jan. 9, but don't expect the details to go public soon. While Buncombe County District Attorney Ron Moore has told some media that the audit showed that around 200 drug parcels might be missing, the Buncombe County District Attorney's keeping the results secret, even from city government.
Xpress has received several e-mails forwarded by hacker and writer Barrett Brown, purportedly from a local resident alleging Buncombe County District Attorney Ron Moore's connection with drug trafficking, a claim Brown has also made. Xpress is investigating the e-mails, which appear to be from a local resident or someone familiar with the area, based on their content.
