In the Nov. 19 Post and Courier there is an article discussing the reasons for the failure of the Mount Pleasant Referendum. First off, I want to say that I voted for the referendum and supported it. There is a quote in the article by the co-chair of the Mount Pleasant Community Arts Core Committee, “Too many items were included. More than …

There was only one new Sullivan’s Island Council member who stuck by their campaign pledge at the Tuesday, Oct. 20 council meeting. All council members had been contacted with letters outlining controversial procedural issues in dealing with zoning changes and precedent- setting long range planning which ignored future impact. The irony of …

We can help the Town of Mount Pleasant get their priorities straight. Don’t get me wrong, I think recreation is important and it would be great to have additional facilities. But it’s not at the top of the list right now. Voting Yes on this referendum is sending the wrong message. We need the Town Council focused on managing growth …

First let me say that I do not believe that the members of city council have horns and tails. I do believe that they think differently than I do on certain subjects. I do believe in capitalism but not at my expense. Why do I have to pay to have someone else move into Mount Pleasant? I do believe in growth for Mount Pleasant but not the high …

From what I read in a recent letter to the editor, candidates are damned it they do and damned if they do not. If the writer feels that no one can give him the iron-clad guarantee that everything will be fixed, and that none of them are aware of the “cutsey” “big picture”, may I suggest that the next time I see a …

The election is nearly a month away and it is still impossible to distinguish the messages of the candidates. They all are going to “work for us” They are all going to make MP the “best place to live as it once was” They are all going to “lower taxes”,” handle money responsibly, “widen …

Remember all the pie in the sky, ‘recycle baby, recycle baby; it’s green baby, its green baby; no more climate change’ and all the other wonderful statements by our paid advisers, consultants, and experts as they walked away with a nice bag of change after agreeing with the politicos who wanted those conclusions in the first …

Once again, Moultrie News to the rescue! Those of us who live in Wakendaw Lakes, especially those of us who border the school, have been concerned about the sale of said property.

Isle of Palms managed parking is a plan to waste our tax dollars. Council paid Stantec thousands of dollars last Memorial Day (2014) to study what we already knew about parking and traffic. Now they want to spend $1.2 million of our money over 10 years to implement a plan that will do nothing to alleviate the traffic problems. But it will add 180 …

It was recently reported that SCE&G has increased electricity rates for its ratepayers by 26% since 2010 (“Big utility rate hikes need more scrutiny,” Post & Courier, June 28) marking the seventh such rate hike tied to the construction of two nuclear reactors at V.C.

With all due respect to the writer of the June 10 “Traffic” letter published in the June 10 Moultrie News, when you have two rivers and only two bridges (the 41 bridge is an excuse and does not count) that separate multi-thousands of cars all over the regional Lowcountry area, the suggestions, as excellent, thoughtful and meaningful …

The Moultrie News is to be commended for the excellent and interesting article about war hero Art Cobert, a former Flying Tiger.

I was so thrilled to read the article in the Moultrie News that the Town of Sullivan’s Island so graciously named the street serving Sullivan’s Island Elementary School after Mike Perkis. I know he is smiling from heaven as a former Marine Corps-trained mayor today, saying, “Ooh Rah!” Please pass my thanks on to Jerry …

I am bursting with pride that the Mount Pleasant Town Council voted, unanimously, to defeat that devious proposed ordinance that would have forced volunteers of commissions and boards to resign from those positions if they decided to run for public office. I think we all need to keep an eye on any public official who would dare to consider …
