Each day this week, we're going to different areas in Charlotte and asking voters what matters to them in this election. Today, we're visiting traditionally conservative south Charlotte, also known as "the wedge." That's because if you look at all the Charlotte neighborhoods in the top 10 percent socio-economically, they all roughly fall in the south Charlotte area between Providence Rd. and Park Rd. in the shape of, well, a wedge.
