South Carolinians should not have to resort to petition drives to get the SC Legislature to do something about infrastructure. We must expand investment in roads, bridges, sewers and public transportation. Traffic along the Hwy 123 corridor between Seneca and Clemson is terrible and will get worse due to population growth, new shopping centers, and increased Clemson enrollment. We must have a visionary plan to ease the congestion, so people can get to work, school, shopping and dining without long delays. Instead of waiting until our infrastructure wears out, we must implement a long-term maintenance program which will save money in the long run. We must get corruption and politics out of the selection process. The right infrastructure projects benefit residents and businesses, improve quality of life, generate jobs in construction and trades, and drive long term economic development.
