Mark Lazaraus is the best candidate for the job. We need change, and this is the time. Mark Lazarus is the one to do this. He has done an outstanding and exceptional job of representing his district in the past. He will bring the trust and honor back into Horry County Council as chairman that we now need so bad.
He can make a difference; the most important matter before us now in Horry County is roads, repair and road construction as everyone knows.
The traffic is going nowhere at the present. Glenns Bay Road should be the No. 1 priority. The road has never been repaved; potholes are everywhere. The traffic is so backed up all the time at Glenns Bay Road and U.S. 17 Bypass and at the Surfside Beach traffic light. We have a $30 road tax in place on every motor vehicle in South Carolina; where is the money being spent? We need tolls. Other states have them; at 25 cents per toll everyone would be paying their fair share. That would bring plenty of revenue into our state that we need so bad for Horry County.
Horry County needs better leadership on revenue for our roads.
