Message From The Mayor
A special note about COVID-19:
These are crazy times in which we are living in. I urge everyone to please take extra care during this time. We must use caution with each other as we will be depending upon each other in order to get through this. The enemy we face knows no borders, has no affiliations, and does not discriminate. This is not a B-L issue, or a South Carolina issue, or even a United States issue. This is a global pandemic and it is up to us to unite in defeating it. As human beings we must unite in fairness, kindness and courage in order to defeat this. Be safe. Reach out for help. Help a neighbor. We will come out the other side stronger and more united than ever.
