Edgefield Mayor Addresses Recent Concerns

Letter to the Editor

September 20, 2013

Dear Edgefield,

Recently, a couple of Town issues (TIF and Bow Hunting) have drawn comments in different media outlets from concerned citizens, unfortunately mostly anonymous. I very much appreciate the public concern, as each member of the Edgefield Town Council and myself need to be held accountable for the decisions we make to better our community. I also understand that every citizen does not have time to attend Town Council meetings where these issues are discussed in detail and depend on us to represent them fairly. However, it is somewhat disheartening to me that with all the recent media comments, I have only received two phone calls where I was able to present the facts and explain the Town’ s position. Whether I changed the mind of the caller or not, at least I was given the chance to hear the caller’s concern and present the Towns side of the issue in an open and informative conversation.

I encourage anyone who has a suggestion or concern regarding any Town business to please call me (803-480-2556) and leave your name and number; I will promptly return your call. I look forward to hearing from you!

Edgefield will be full of wonderful activities this weekend with the Heritage Jubilee. Please come out and enjoy what your community has to offer and watch for more activities thru the entire holiday season. As always, SHOP LOCAL as much as possible.
