As a Democratic candidate for Union County Council District 5 I have the experience and interest to work with Union County Council Members for the improvement of Union County.
My service as a public servant for 31 years and presently as a bailiff with the Union County Clerk of Court has helped broaden my interest in knowing what the citizens of Union County need and want. Therefore, I can join forces with members in position and make a difference in this community.
As I meet people of the county and city I am asked, “Why can’t we have a Union Mall with reputable stores so we won’t have to travel to Spartanburg and surrounding areas to shop?”
Some ask, “Why can’t we have better facilities for the senior citizens, more recreational facilities for the youth to get them off the streets?”
I have also been asked, “Why can’t we have a water park, or a public swimming pool?” There is nothing for our kids to do in the summer.
Last but least, some have asked, “Why can’t we have an Applebee’s, Charlie’s or Wendy’s.”
How do I answer? “I can’t make you promises but as your representative I will present your needs and desires and hope for thoughtful consideration.” I am confident county council and city council will work on one accord and help shape the future of Union County.
I would like to implement “Crime Watch” in neighborhoods and “Check on Neighbor” campaign. This campaign would accommodate seniors that live alone.
I would also like to see Union have a convention hall that would be used for meetings, community functions, conferences, and other types of events.
I could go on and on making one promise after another but progress cannot take place with one person, it takes working together and my promise to you is this: I will continue efforts to direct my attention to your needs.
If at any time you would like to contact me for your concerns, I will have an open door policy to listen to all concerns and questions.
I am hoping you will allow me to serve as your District 5 County Councilman.
Thanking you in advance, Tommie L. Hill Sr.
