Williamston Mayor Carthel Crout has been selected to serve on the board of The Municipal Association of South Carolina’s Mayors Association, a group of mayors from around the state which lobbies the General Assembly on various issues of interest.

Crout was informed of his selection last week. “The portion of the state represented by these mayors includes more than a million of our state’s residents. It is an honor for myself and for Williamston that the Association thought enough of our town to select its mayor to represent the people.”

Some of the issues that the group approaches the General Assembly about include aid to subdivisions, which is the monies returned by the state to the smaller divisions of government, such as counties, which then distribute those revenues to various cities and towns.

Issues concerning annexation are also important. “The Municipal Association has other lobbyists who work with the General Assembly. But the Mayors Association simply gives us a louder and stronger voice. I look forward to working with the General Assembly and my fellow mayors to accomplish more for our citizens.”
