Yesterday, I was very honored and privileged to receive an endorsement from a great group of local leaders here in South Carolina.
We have to have a vision that leads this state forward. These mayors embody the best of that vision on the local level. As governor, I will work to restore the frayed relationship between our state government and cities and towns here in South Carolina. I promise to create a direct connection between municipalities, our local governments and the Department of Commerce to rebuild the link between our communities and our state economic development efforts. We have so much to offer in this state and our local officials play a vital role in achieving all that we can achieve.
I thank this group of mayors for their endorsement, support and their work on behalf of the citizens of South Carolina. Together we can work to restore trust in government and begin again to create jobs for South Carolina.
