Voice of the people for June 19

June 18, 2014 

Want to join new panel?

I want to thank the District 5 voters for their outpouring of support in the recent primary election. I am truly humbled by your support and am honored to have the Republican nomination for the York County District 5 Council seat.

While there is no current opposition in the general election, trust that I will not be sitting idly by until November. I will be participating in the volunteer York County 101 informational class, observing county council meetings and continuing to reach out to constituents and leaders in our community to learn as much as possible. I want to be fully prepared and ready to start working for you in January.

Additionally, over the next 6 months I will be working to put together an advisory committee (consisting of a citizen from each of the 19 precincts in District 5), to ensure I have input throughout our district on important council matters (e.g. roads, growth management, etc.). Once in office, I also intend to provide at least quarterly email updates to citizens in my district about county issues and would like to start compiling contact information for folks interested in receiving this information. If you live in District 5 and are interested in serving on the advisory committee and/or receiving email correspondence, please contact me by email at christicox5@gmail.com.

I am very excited about the opportunity to serve you on council. Thank you again for your trust and confidence.

Godspell is well done

Concerned about today’s young people? Worried about their ability to assume leadership positions? For reassurance, come to the Rock Hill Community Theatre’s production of Godspell, showing 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday at Winthrop University’s Johnson Hall.

Under the capable direction of Jimmy Chrismon, the cast of 16 mostly students from area high schools put on a show marked by excellent singing, clever lines, and, as for the choreography, the discipline and skill of fast-paced dancing is truly flawless. The musical dates to 1971. As one who has seen it numerous times over the years, I want to tell you our local young people take no back seat to bigger-ticket, glitzier productions from elsewhere.

Give yourself and your family a treat by coming out to Johnson Hall this weekend. You will not be disappointed!
