VII - LOCAL GOVERNMENT
C. Current Years (2005-2015)
Passing One Sumter was one of the most beneficial voter's actions in years. It returned the county to its original roots, wherein all county residents got to vote for all the county commissioners. The result is evident. Commissioner cooperation exists again and each district has its votes magnified fivefold for the good of the county as a whole. Taxes have been reduced, self-serving projects were reduced, canals dredged, wasteful items eliminated, and everyone benefited.
