This fall several areas can elect new local leaders. I don't know about the York County Council members. Since voters passed new four year terms in November 2016 for the County Council replacing the two year terms. I voted against 4 year terms. Two years if they do good elect them again if not throw them out. YC County Council and other political offices should not be a lifetime term. Electing same ones over and over and over again.

Psy: Tega Cay Mayor has voiced his opinion loud and clear about the bridge proposal over the Catawba. Rock Hill dumping their traffic onto Sutton Road. What a mess that would be thousands of cars on that two lane road and on the Rock Hill side it's two lane roads also. Fort Mill mayor hasn't said as much as the Tega Cay Mayor. When Danny Funderburk was mayor of FM he was adamant on no bridge.

The Rock Hill-Fort Mill Area Transportation Study committee brings up the bridge and extending Dave Lyle Blvd to Hwy 521 every five or less years. The bridge has been tabled each time and the Dave Lyle Blvd extention was stopped when Lancaster County backed out due to lack of funds.

Yeah well the hell with FM. They've done nothing or next to nothing to stop the unbridled growth in their township. They have helped create this mess and have not held the developers feet to the fire as far as paying for the infrastructure(roads and school needed to address the population explosion). Every 1 acre or larger piece of land is being sold to developers for high density housing/strip malls.etc. When the next economic downturn comes, there's going to be a lot of late model empty homes and boarded up store fronts. But of course the developers will be long gone with their wallets stuffed with cash.

If Lake Wylie folks weren’t happy with 842 new homes, just wait until they see what could come.

Well said. It's a damn shame what has happened over the past 6 to 7 years.


I am shocked at the apathy of the voters as well. We have allowed the politicians and developers to ruin what was once a very nice area to live.

Last I checked, it's still a very nice area to live...

Voter apathy is everywhere - it's not just in York County. Do I think leadership could be making better choices and consider the long-term future a bit more? Yes. But I still like living here.

Voters line up for presidential elections. Whoopee I voted for the president those little ole SC 9 electoral votes. But when it comes to local, I mean something that actually affects your wallet, your roads, your schools, leaders of your county, voter turnout is dismal. York County Council member, your local school board, your city council member, all in the hands of the voter casting that ballot. Even our state leaders SC Governor, SC House of Rep, SC Senate, all in the hands of the local voters. This is the only time our one little vote really counts yet voter turnout is always depressing.

Towns of Hickory Grove, McConnells, Sharon, Smyrna also holding elections on November 7 for mayor and council members.

This past November the York County voters approved 4 year term limits for our York County Council members. This election was held on November 8 our national election date. Thus big turnout due to presidential election at same time. The 4 year term was narrowly approved with 50.62% majority. If this election was held on one of the off dates we would still have a 2 year term limits for council members.
