Letter: Run government like a good business

Most people, myself included, really don’t pay a great deal of attention to the details of how our elected officials run our county government. Results, cost, and progress (?), yes, that’s more interesting.

This is why I believe concerned voters should devote their time and energy  into the process of electing the best candidates to work for us. This election process should not be any different than a business attempting to select the best person when hiring a new manager.

When we vote, we shouldn’t think of it as some sort of popularity contest.  Government at all levels is the people’s business, and I believe it should be run like a good business.

Voters have asked our county council to be very proactive in attempting to attract more industry, businesses and jobs into Kershaw County. Our council has responded to this request by voting to put more money, talent and effort into doing just that. Their competition, of course, are the many other cities, counties and states competing for the same result. Our industrial bonds are being used to finance this business venture.  There are no guarantees, but a totally organized team surely improves our chances of success.

This newspaper recently published a letter composed by one our council members.  His negative attitude clearly implies that he is not on board supporting the efforts of our council in achieving their goals. He states publically that he wants the administration to provide him information that he has actually been involved with over the last 10 years.

Hello, Lugoff!

Maybe it’s time to give this county a representative from your district with real business experience who is willing to work as a team member.

Remember, there’s no “I” in “TEAM.”
