The candidates (from left), Phyllis Hampton Dye, incumbent Walter Long and Willard Polk, answered a number of questions on the revitalization of downtown Camden, taxes and preservation.
Speaking to perhaps 30 people in Camden High School’s auditorium, three candidates vying for two seats on Camden City Council had their last chance to present their views on how to secure Camden’s future Tuesday night. Incumbent Walter Long faced challengers Phyllis Hampton Dye and X. Willard Polk during a forum sponsored by the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Kershaw County School District. Most of the evening’s questions and answers focused on revitalizing the city’s business district and taxes.
