It has been such an honor to have been involved in public service in Greenville County for the last 38 years. I never dreamed when I started that I would stay this long.
I appreciate very much the citizens of our community giving me the opportunity to serve first on Greenville County Council for 15 years and then as clerk of court for the last 23 years. What a special opportunity I have had to work with people across the county in special-purpose and tax districts, municipalities, as well as county government. We are fortunate to have great people in public service, many of whom I have been able to work with and have gotten to know personally.
I believe our community is what it is today because of men and women that have answered the call to public service. I have been so blessed over the years to have had a seat and witness people working together for the common good of our community. Many areas of the country would love to have what we have here in Greenville, South Carolina.
As I retire, I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds. I have a grateful heart for the time that I was given to serve.
