Buncombe scam update? Got $2.1M, need $900K more to ‘make us whole’ make us whole,’ Fryar tells CIBO

From Staff Reports

Buncombe County Commissioner Mike Fryar gave a “State of the Buncombe County Legal Update,” noting that much progress has been achieved in collecting taxpayer money lost in an alleged scam involving former county officials.

His two-minute report was given during the Dec. 6 early-morning meeting of the Council of Independence Business Owners in UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center.

“I think I’m here to talk about Wanda Greene, Mandy Stone, Jon Creighton — all of the people we’re suing,” Fryar said. (Greene and Stone are former county managers and Creighton is a former assistant county manager).

“We got $2.1 millon back” to date, Fryar continued. Of that amount, “we got the $40,000 back from Michael Greene,” a former county employee who is the son of Wanda Greene.

“Hopefully, we’ll come out pretty whole in this. We’ve got $2.1 million —  and $3 million will make us whole,” meaning completely reimbursed.

And, atypically for CIBO meetings, no question-and-answer session followed Fryar’s talk.
