Former City of Myrtle Beach corporate parent Burroughs and Chapin has chosen to invest in Charleston over the downtown area of Myrtle Beach.
High profile city staff, including Police Captain Joey Crosby are leaving the city for jobs elsewhere.
Myrtle Beach hotelier Brittain Resorts Management is selling and getting out of the Myrtle Beach market.
The City of Myrtle Beach is clearly in a time of high transition.
John Newman says he brings the type of competence and experience to help navigate this coming new era for city government.
Owning and managing a highly regarded construction company in our area proves he can meet deadlines, work with and through others, and get things done.
In his own words above, Newman highlights solutions that he thinks can help solve downtown crime.
Newman believes the City Manager position’s pay should be tied to performance. This would incentivize the manager to stay on focus as he manages the different departments and works to meet the mayor and council’s stated objectives.
As Tuesday’s election is just ahead, Newman’s message appears to be gaining traction city-wide. Newman was widely applauded as he presented to a joint meeting of Dunes Club, Grand Dunes, and Dell Web homeowners just this week.
Market Common residents positively approve of the fresh eyes and fresh approach Newman brings to decades old, unsolved city problems.
Tuesday will be a “tell” as to whether the residents of Myrtle Beach are ready to enter a new era of leadership, or if the city simply wants more of the same old unsolved, ongoing problems.
