The Times and Democrat - Digital

Now comes the governing

LEE HARTER T&D Editor​ ​ ​

Municipal elections are behind us. For this year's town elections, The Times and Democrat profiled candidates in contested races around The T&D Region.

We asked questions about their priorities for the town and how they anticipated being a part of their town reaching its goals.

And we asked about a commitment to keeping people informed through abiding by provisions of the S.C. Freedom of Information Act.

Nearly universally, candidates prioritized making their communities better through fostering growth that will give young people reasons to remain as adults and enjoy a rural lifestyle. And we're glad to report, all pledged support for open government, keeping people abreast of what town government is doing.
