LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Grateful for the S.C. Community Alliance

Thank you to the South Carolina Community Alliance for its efforts to stop the Florence City Council’s proposed ordinance of increased fees and costs for landlords. This ordinance would have detrimental consequences for residents of Florence, to include raised rent prices.

Florence residents want to keep their quality of life, and as we are currently dealing with COVID-19, the last thing we needed was city council trying to sneak in this proposed ordinance. I am so grateful that the S.C. Community Alliance raised awareness about this issue so that our community could come together to oppose this ordinance from going to vote.

While I’m sure that this will reappear at a later date, I’m relieved that we have even more time to raise awareness about the effects of this proposed ordinance and why it is not the right direction for our city. Without the S.C. Community’s Alliance’s proactive efforts, we might be in a completely different situation right now.

So often, we’ve been let down by those we elect. Why do you cast a vote for someone? For me, trust is the most critical component when choosing a public servant. Having known Bryan Braddock since 1989 I can testify that Bryan is a trustworthy man.

I read with interest in Thursday's edition of the Morning News about the James Clyburn interview with CNN where he thinks the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett reminds him of the Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson decisions of the Supreme Court.

A recent letter to the editor by Jill Lewis, chairman of the board of Florence County Progress, highlighted the millions of dollars in countywide improvements funded over the past 14 years through Florence County’s penny sales tax. Ballots for the November election – already going out to voters around the county – detail a long list of important projects our county can fund if we choose on Nov. 3 to keep the penny for an additional seven years.
