“Kershaw County is open for business” is the mantra Kershaw County Councilman Julian Burns often uses to summarize his vision for bringing industries and other businesses to the area. Burns used it again as his theme, with assistance from County Administrator Vic Carpenter on Friday morning during a Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the historic Robert Mills Courthouse. As local elected officials, business owners and others finished a meal of a cheesy egg bake, grits, sausage, fruit and water, juice or coffee, Burns listed out what he called his “convictions” regarding the county after more than 15 months as chairman.
