State Representative Carla Schuessler MBACC hire gets $54 million annually. Works to bring in illegals and change Horry County’s demographic landscape permanently.

On Monday, Conway city leaders in Conway S.C. approved an $85 million spending plan that would raise property taxes by 16% next year.

Local residents were highly upset about the tax increase, however Conway has legitimate reasons why the increase is necessary. Meanwhile, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce has a $54 million annual tax budget, yet few locals ever raise a whimper. The City of Conway is accountable to FOIA laws. The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce is not.

MBACC sells the $54 million tax to local businesses. The funds then become private dollars that MBACC can do with as it pleases.

State Representative Carla Schuessler is a chamber activist who works in tight circles with and for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

Thanks to Schuessler and her MBACC hire, 25% of all Horry County Students speak English as a second language. Riordan is a proponent of bringing in illegal immigrants to help the construction and tourist industries find cheap labor. Riordan aids the New Americans NGO in reshaping the landscape of Horry County.

Schuessler chose to vote for Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016. She has voted for the Democratic presidential candidate for her entire life through 2016. Our news agency is unsure if she voted for Biden or Trump in 2020. We do not have that record.

Conway can justify a tax hike

Conway City Councilman William Goldfinch said the hike is necessary to keep up with city employees’ cost of living.

Inquiring why Goldfinch is raising my taxes, he said, has been a common question from people. It is the reality of the city of Conway that it has no other option but to increase taxes to pay its employees as costs rise, groceries rise, and everything else rises.

“Our police officers and all of our employees deserve a living wage, and the only way to do this is to increase our millage, especially in a reassessment year,” Goldfinch said.

Give government funded “not for profits” money, and they will find a way to use it against you.

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce has four massive PACs they contribute to. The Grand Strand Business Alliance is a key PAC. These PACS then fund MBACC preferred candidates who usually hire powerful political consultants like Walter Whetsell.

Whetsell is the SC House Republican Party consultant as well

Whetsell is actively working in the upstate of S.C. to ensure that all Freedom Caucus candidates are primaried. His firm is the consultant of the majority of those upstate candidates running against Freedom Caucus incumbents.

Whetsell is the most powerful political consultant in S.C., and the one of the most powerful men in the state. He is the muscle behind liberal state Republican elected officials. He also works in tight circles with the Carla Schuessler MBACC hire.
