If you’re a Summerville resident, like me, who’s concerned about where you live and the environmental impact of uncontrolled development, vote for change during the upcoming elections scheduled for May 8th. Currently, the Summerville town council majority vote is controlled by a group of very comfortable incumbents who some might describe as self-serving. If you read the Summerville Journal Scene you’ve probably read an article or two about “adequate facilities ordinances.” You’ve also probably read many letters to the editor concerning the lack of council backbone regarding infrastructure planning when approving new developments. Obviously, you’ll make your own choice about who to vote for, but if you want change, here are a few Go Green recommendations…

Mike Dawson is one of the few current council members who acts with our best interests in mind, not those of real estate developers. He’s up for reelection in District 4 and deserves to stay. In District 2, Diane Frankenberger is a first-time candidate running against long-time council member and custom homebuilder Ricky Waring. Bob Jackson is another first-time candidate in the mix running against Chris Seiber in District 6. Both Frankenberger and Jackson have displayed a willingness to make Summerville’s town council a more responsible group who acts consistently with the best interests of the community in mind.

Many of the candidates will be on hand tonight, May 2nd, at the Perkins on Trolley Rd to meet voters and answer questions. The meeting starts at 7p.m. So get involved, make a difference and vote! If you plan to vote, you must be a registered voter living in a district that is contested in this election and you must bring proof of residency. Also, each district has a different polling place, which is not your normal voting spot so make sure you know where to vote before heading out on May 8th. Here’s a current list of council members along with contact information. I’m sure you can contact any of them for further information about where to vote in your district. This is important to the future of Summerville… spread the word!
