Politics is often a curious creature, and few things have been “curiouser” than Kershaw County Council’s decision to create a commission to explore alternatives for a penny sales tax to help the county’s recreation program, and then do an abrupt about-face, terminating the measure. The citizens who served on the commission and worked hard to come up with a decent plan must be wondering why they expended all the effort. Most curious of all was the explanation offered by council member Jimmy Jones, who said he voted for the measure on first reading even though he didn’t support it and then made the motion to table it on second reading, saying it was “the right thing to do for our community.”
