Happy Independence Day!

FB_IMG_1499460460613241 years ago today, the Second Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence, proposing a new government that derives its “just powers from the consent of the governed.” As we celebrate today, let us also reflect on the great privilege these words have afforded us: freedom from government without representation. And let us remember these words this November when we once again have the opportunity to go to the ballot box and choose representatives from Wards 2, 4, & 6. Happy Independence Day, Simpsonville! Have fun and be safe however you’re celebrating today.
