As a small business owner operating in Horry County, I am putting my full support behind candidate Mark Lazarus, who is currently running for chairman of our Horry County Council.
Mark has been a business owner himself for many years and certainly understands how difficult it can be to operate a small business in these tough economic times. Personally, it has been a struggle from time to time for my business in dealing with the miscommunication of our state and local governments on the issues of licenses, taxes and jurisdictions. And because all agencies are not operating on the same page, the burden is definitely put on the business owner to sort out these issues, resulting in the waste of time and money in tracking down answers.
We need a committed chairman who will work together with our Horry County Council to promote cooperation between all levels of government, therefore allowing business owners to operate their businesses more effectively without having to jump over so many hurdles.
I truly believe that through his vast business experience combined with his strong leadership skills, clear vision of our needs and downright care for the people of Horry County, Mark Lazarus is the correct and only choice for chairman of Horry County Council.
Please join me on Tuesday in supporting Mark Lazarus with your vote and making a difference for all in Horry County.
