Last week, at its annual conference in Hilton Head, S.C., the assembled membership of the South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) elected Anderson County Council Vice Chairman Ray Graham, who represents Anderson County Council District Three, to a four-year term on the South Carolina Association of Counties Board of Directors.

“This was a great opportunity to learn from and share ideas with colleagues about what is and is not working in counties across the state,” said Graham regarding the conference. “Having a seat on the SCAC Board of Directors gives Anderson County a voice during discussions of revenue opportunities, legislative proposals, and potential ordinances relevant to Anderson County and the citizens here. This is another opportunity for the citizens of Anderson County to be heard throughout the state and to give them a say in decisions affecting their daily lives and financial resources. We hope this will help bring the best possible solutions for Anderson County.”

Anderson County Council Chairman Tommy Dunn said, “We in Anderson County were glad to hear of Councilman Graham’s election to the South Carolina Association of Counties Board of Directors. Since taking office in January 2017, Mr. Graham has hit the ground running, working hard for his constituents, for all of Anderson County, and, now, for all South Carolinians. The growth we continue to experience in Anderson County demands that we are open to new ways of serving our citizens, and we look forward to a renewed and reinvigorated partnership with SCAC through Mr. Graham in his new role.”

Graham will serve on the Board until his term expires in 2023.
