A few days after the horrible train wreck in Graniteville several years ago, I had the privilege to meet Phil Napier. Since then, I have gotten to know him personally, and I have never met anyone more dedicated to serving his community than Mr. Napier.

Now I am delighted to learn he is a candidate for Aiken County Council. Beyond his service to his community, he is a man of great character and integrity.

He has been a leader in this area of Graniteville, Warrenville and Aiken for many years. He is a worker, not a talker. Anyone who knows Napier has a good idea for what he stands for: Honest government, open government and service (proven) to his community.

Please join me in voting for Napier on Feb. 5.
