HIGH PRAISE FROM S.C. REPRESENTATIVE
We spoke with S.C. Representative Stewart O. Jones from Laurens today. Said Jones, “I served on Laurens County Council for years when Jon first took office. He is a game changer and willing to make the tough calls needed. We fought together to continue a budget review process which showed how the county had wasted monies for years. I highly recommend Jon for the job as Horry County Administrator.“
Jones went on to say that Caime put an end to historic good ole boy, back door deals in the county. “He really shook things up in a positive way. His character is above reproach. “
