I AGREE WITH YOU, the guys at public works do a hell of a job , i have seen alot of new sidewalks being put in, they are even out in the rain and snow doin work. Frank Mullins and Gerald Bergie needs to realize what great employees they have out at the public works dept. , ( and not the ones who sit behind a desk all day. )the ones out breakin a sweat to make SC a lil bit nicer.

I think SC has the best city worker in the country. I wish the mayor and mr burgy would reward them and remember where they came from. I'm sure the police, fire and public works department could have used a raise instead of hiring a city manager. The city council also make rediculous amounts of money to be nothing more than a yes man for the mayor.

Well, I heard some of the city workers sayin' that Mullins told them when he was running for election that if the city workers voted for him they would get a pay raise. Then when he was elected he did not give them a pay raise but took one for himself and gave himself a mayor salary of over or about $75,000.00 yearly --- which by no means is a great salary but if you are Jim the city worker making $18-$25,000 a year -- a % pay raise for you and your family means a lot.
So, I say to you all --- if you live in S.C.-- shake it up -- do not vote for any encumbent city council member -- some of them like Sonny has been in that seat forever and S.C. does need a change and not
"YES" men.----- VOTE----VOTE----VOTE---VOTE--- VOTE-------S.C. needs a overhaul!!!

I live in Sonnys ward and I for one have to say he has done a great job, anytime someone in our ward has a problem he is there to address it. Thats more than I can say from talking to other people in other wards councilmen. He will have my vote again if he runs.

The only one's getting raises r mullens and carlton lee. But the guys out cleanin up the city , puttin in new sidewalks , etc. , don't even get a second thought about gettin a raise. But if u sit behind a desk in the warmth of winter or the ac in summer, then u get a raise. Mullens needs to realize these hard workin men at public works is doin a great job a deserve a lil more.

I don't even understand why there's a 'City Manager' position to begin with. Isn't the Mayor typically considered the manager of the city? That city manager is depriving hard-working employees of full time positions so that he can hire in his friends. What a dick. Every one of them need to be replaced.

I think that everyone is right about the manager, he is just hiring in his friends to full time positions and taking from the other hard, dedicated workers of SC. I just wonder if council can get rid of him?

If Don Gibson and Careles Williams are elected you will see alot of changes for the better.To many of the current councilmen are yes men and woman.They will not speak out or question the mayor or city manager on items brought before them.We need council people with some back bone.

Sonny is not a yes man, that's why Frank wanted him out of that position,people have no idea what's going on at SC and from what I hear, its not good. Carlton should be fired he does nothing but walk around with the higher than thou attitude. People get what they get with Kathleen and in 1 yr they will wish they had Sonny back. I would like to see him file and have a write in, I know he would beat her then, cause the rep could vote then.

Beth,Sonny is not a yes man.He and Paul Neal would speak out on issues,sometimes Dayton Griffit,but the real mayor of South Charleston is Carlton Lee.

The city would have $70 some thousand more dollars more if they would do away with Carlton Lee's position!! What a waste!!
And if the mayor isn't careful, Carlton is going to end up costing the city a lot of money in lawsuits, because he isn't paying the employees medical bills! If any of those hit as a negative on my credit report, I will sue the pants off of them!!!
