Schools important to Aiken County's future
The Aiken Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors voted unanimously to endorse a “yes” vote on a $90 million public bond referendum proposed for Aiken County Public Schools that will be on the ballot May 1.
“We cannot overstate how important the Aiken County Public Schools are to building Aiken’s future. This is a well-thought out plan that will positively affect the students, teachers and our community.”
Richard Harmon, Security Federal Bank.
“Quality public education facilities are a crucial tool in recruiting employers to the region.This bond will help keep the Aiken region competitive in an increasingly demanding marketplace. Companies looking to invest millions of dollars and hiring hundreds of people want to go to communities that are investing in themselves."
Will Williams, Economic Development Partnership President/CEO
“We as a community have the opportunity to accelerate the road toward modern school facilities that was started with the passage of the penny tax. Support of this bond will address these needs in a 3-year time frame. Other fun
ding options will not allow us to impact these needs for the next 9-19 years."
Julie Whitesell, Meybohm Real Estate
“The success of Aiken County Public Schools is intrinsically linked with the success of Aiken. Pastor Paul Bush, Concerned Ministers Fellowship. The Aiken Chamber has consistently advocated and supported Aiken County Public Schools for 100 years. Please join us in voting YES May 1.”
