Our schools are all falling apart, and now we’re hunting money so kids can get a decent school. It is obviously at the bottom of the list. We spent $37 million on a new county building. They have put themselves in first-rate accommodations, and the school...
I’m against all these increases. The water rate is going up, SCE&G wants to raise its rates and the school wants a penny tax. You can’t keep raising all these fees and expect people to live. Something has to be done about it.

We’re native Aiken Countians. We don’t need any more outsiders on County Council. Local people need to be put in office who know what Aiken County needs and wants. What is the Chamber of Commerce doing dilly-dallying into the school system?
It’s pouring rain and the tree debris pick-up crews from other areas are in our neighborhood picking up common area debris. They really hustle and do an excellent job. Where are the “local” City of Aiken crews – haven’t seen anyone from the city in a month.
