Mayor won’t run for another term

Editor’s note: Pickens Mayor David Owens recently asked the Courier for space to run an important message about his nearly two decades of service to the city, including four terms as mayor. His letter is published in its entirety starting below.

Dear citizens of the city of Pickens,

Under the leadership of former Mayor Ted Shehan, ground was broken for the construction of the Pickens Recreation Center in 2003. The center was completed in 2005, during my first term as mayor. Our recreation facilities and programmatic activities are

“You asked us to look at ways to continue what’s going on at Hagood Mill at a reasonable cost,” county administrator Gerald Wilson said. “We’ve looked at public-private partnership.”

Pitts asked council to think about “two simple questions.”

“What’s best for Pickens County and then what’s best for Hagood Mill?” he said.

The last few weeks, which have seen the termination of Hagood Mill site director Billy Crawford and McDaniel’s resignation as foundation chair,
