Column: What should GOP moderates do?

I make no bones about the fact that I consider myself a centrist, moderate Democrat. When it comes to the country's finances, I don't believe in the pie-in-the-sky schemes of the extreme left-wingers in the party. On social issues, on the other hand, I admit to being pretty liberal, and yet am completely open to finding middle ground with moderate Republicans.

The route and the road diet

More than six and a half years ago, in January 2012, the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) held a public information meeting regarding a proposed enforceable truck route for the city of Camden and a subsequent "road diet" for Broad Street. The idea -- actually dating back decades and, in its current form, to 2008 -- was to get heavy truck traffic out of Camden's downtown district so that Broad Street between DeKalb and York streets could be reduced to one lane in each direction with other amenities to make the area more walkable.
