Ed Driggers, administrator for the "City of Greed" paid your tax money for the following plan.

An aggressive annexation policy,(Force residents of Taylors to submit to Greed taxes with no increase in the quality of life)

Extensive utility infrastructure development and improvement (Spend CPW money to build instead of using funds to reduce the cost of CPW services)

Best management practices in land-use planning,(push the poor out of the city, they will not be able to afford to live here anyway).


Comprehensive economic development strategies (Raise taxes and fees on existing businesses)

... Factors that should contribute to the city of Greer sustaining its population rate of growth into the near future (Using taxes to improve the value of "Pals of Greed" property and forcing areas to accept annexation or have their water and sewer cut off)

The city would:
Recruit a unique retail anchor (Neiman Marcus? Tiffany’s?)

Market “hip and historic downtown,”(Slogan: "Come slumming in Downtown Greed; bring your own fire extinguisher")(Vehicle manslaughter and parking tickets validated)

City Park and the events center at City Hall (only the water-fountains are free)

Establish a tourism strategy and a visitors’ center.(Borrow more money to build another building that we do not need)

Greer businessperson Amanda Somers can be counted on to speak up for the City, with whom she has a contract to provide services to all the employees of Greed.
