We had a good meeting tonight, heard from Clerk of Court Hope Blackley with an update on the Courthouse and she shared about her Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute, which had its third meeting today – 45 kids from 11th and 12th grades learning all about law enforcement opportunities and how our justice system works by engaging with those who serve in that system every day. Well done!

We were also pleased to hear from Councilmen Roger Nutt and Justin Bradly who informed us about some budgeting issues on the horizon, and the direction of council.  They stuck around to speak after the meeting, and answered any questions.

Finally we had the Freedom Action Network folks visiting, and after the tea party meeting I sat down for a few minutes with Seth Powell and we did a live podcast.  You can view that on their Facebook page – which you should join!
