am Johnny Gardner, a candidate for Horry County Council chairman. I am a native of Conway,
a graduate of Coastal
and the University of South Carolina School of Law, a U.S. Army veteran having served as a
Captain in the 82nd Airborne Infantry Division and the founder of Johnny
Gardner Law, P.A.
up in Horry
I saw a number of things I felt were unfair to common people. I thought if I went to law
school, I could help make a difference. That is the same reason I am running for council
chairman. Often, effects on the average citizen are barely considered when decisions are
made by council. They deserve to have a voice too and I want to be that voice.
same is true of our county employees. The biggest asset Horry
has is the people who go to work every day to keep the county running whether they are
police, fire or emergency services personneI, employees in the various maintenance
departments or clerks in an office. I want to level the playing field and make sure
everyone is compensated fairly and treated with the respect and appreciation they deserve.
are again facing another period of out of control growth in Horry
We must take a more reasoned approach to development and not allow growth continue to
outrun governments ability to service it. We must take a very serious look at how we
can effectively impose impact fees on new development and not continue to raise taxes and
fees on current residents to pay the cost of goods and services for new development.
need a county chairman who will encourage council members to ensure the best policy
decisions are made for the citizens of the county and who will then hold staff accountable
for implementing those policies. We cannot allow staff to dictate policies with council
acting merely as a rubber stamp.
I ask for your vote on June 12th. Please feel free to give
me a call. My number is 843-748-7293
