Fiefdom mentality

Dear Editor,

Until we all realize that we are all one county, that our cities make up one county and that our counties are one Upstate, we will continue with “one step forward and two steps backward.”

There are too many fiefdoms in existence already. What’s good for Easley is good for Liberty, what goes on at Clemson makes us all look smarter. What a company locating in Pickens does is good for Six Mile.

I recommend Googling “Ten at the Top” and visiting that website to learn more about the benefits of regional collaboration.

As a county, we can only move forward with quality education, planned growth and  economic development when we are all marching as one. We can do better. Here’s to us all recognizing that!
