Gov. Henry McMaster sees South Carolina as ripe with opportunity.
As a key facet of the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Sumter Legislative Day, the governor spoke on Wednesday, March 8 to a group of folks from Sumter representing city and county government, Shaw Air Force Base, the healthcare and financial sectors and more.
“The primary purpose is to place focus on the issues that will really affect our business community,” said Chris Hardy, chamber president, as he introduced McMaster.
Well I did it again, I talked about the nice weather with 800 temperatures in February and now it is mid- March with 400 and 500 temperatures. The Azalea blooms may not survive the next few weeks. We even had ‘snow’ one morning! We did not receive much accumulation but it sure was nice to see the big flakes falling.
Funded by a three-way partnership of Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter Smarter Growth Initiative, the Development Board’s mission is to increase per capita income by creating jobs and luring capital investment to our community.
