Why Singer is best for Aiken County



I endorse Scott Singer for District 2 Aiken County Council.

Mr. Singer will be a fresh, energetic voice on our council. His reasoned, non-combative approach to problem-solving makes him an ideal candidate to help bridge the gap between a divided council.

Mr. Singer's platform is indicative of his style. Eschewing lofty rhetoric and personal attacks on his opponent, Scott wisely focuses on the critical issues facing our community, including the need for long-range planning, sustained economic development and responsible growth.

I also appreciate his long-term commitment to the welfare of our residents. Those associated with the organizations he has dedicated his time and talent to will attest that his service has been real and meaningful - not resume stuffing by an ambitious politico.

The American Red Cross, St. Mary's Help of Christians School, the Aiken Kiwanis Club and Helping Hands are a few of the organizations that have benefited from his service.

On Tuesday District 2 voters will have an opportunity to make a positive difference by electing Mr. Singer to the Aiken County Council.

Michael A. Burkhart, Aiken, S.C.
