Scott Chitty has supported the Merriwether Community of Edgefield County on the school board for two terms. He has been a strong voice for Merriwether schools while still supporting all of the schools in Edgefield County. Scott has always been fair and a good guardian of the taxpayers' money. He holds the county to high academic standards.
Recent rumors in the community that Scott did not vote for the express bus simply are false. I was there the night the vote was taken, and he voted in favor of the bus. Scott supports all of the students in Merriwether, and always has.
Now is not the time for a change in school board representation for Merriwether. The learning curve is too steep and the upcoming budget years will be tough for the school board. Scott needs your support for re-election to the Edgefield County School Board to continue the support of Merriwether Schools.
