Referenda supporters speak to school board
Placeholder Image
Three people spoke to the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees during its April 7 meeting about the possibility of bringing a new set of facility construction and penny sales tax referenda to voters in 2016. Bethune Town Councilman John Heflin briefly asked the board to engage him, his fellow council members and the Bethune community in seeking consensus on the issue. Local attorney Ben Connell and recently retired banker Dennis Stuber -- members of a pro-referenda group formed in 2014 -- made a short presentation on their early thoughts about putting the referenda back on the ballot next year.
