Consider This: Congratulations Mayor Elect Hines

With all of the controversy surrounding the presidential election and the attention Donald Trump is getting…good stories, impactful stories that affect our communities can get lost or overlooked.

History is being made in the city of Darlington as the city's first female African American Mayor is getting ready to take office.

Gloria Hines has already started by assembling a transition team focusing on infrastructure, revenue and helping businesses succeed.  She wants input, discussion and advice before taking office…the moves of a great leader.

Consider This:  It is very easy to get comfortable with what you know…and to accept how things have always been. It takes a lot of courage to realize new leadership is needed.  Great things can happen when there's new perspective and collaboration.

Congratulations Mayor Elect Hines.  I look forward to seeing Darlington grow.
