Skyview Drive resident files to run for South Congaree Town Council
South Congaree, SC (Paul Kirby) – Robert Cade, 42, a resident of Skyview Drive, has filed to run for the open seat on the South Congaree Town Council. Cade has been a specialized crane and rigging contractor for a number of years. He is married to Christy. They have three grown children, and one that’s a student at Airport High School.
Cade has lived in the town for almost 10 years. He says he’s been very involved in the town since moving here. In the past, he served as chair of the Town Finance Committee, has done volunteer work in the town helping in clean-up days, assisted with fund raising efforts and town special events. He says he really cares about South Congaree and making it a better place for everyone.
Cade said recently that he was discouraged with some of the current leadership of the town. Cade said that at times, he felt like the town was moving in the, “wrong direction.” He said that the overall look of the town is discouraging at times and he feels this may be due to a lack of code enforcement. Cade said he feels like there are codes in place that cover a great many of the appearance issues, but those codes also may need to be reviewed, brought up to date, or simply enforced. He also believes that if the town will continue to set the standard by continuing to improve its own look, residents will begin to follow and make their properties look nicer. He’s not advocating for code enforcement that would give people little or no time to make changes. He simply believes that collectively, the town’s government and its citizens can work together to alleviate problems and clean things up.
Cade wants even more residents to become involved in the town. He feels like South Congaree is a great place to live, it simply could use some fine-tuning and having more residents get involved would certainly help. He says that’s one of the reasons he has offered himself for this office, he’s ready to become more involved in helping guide the town into the future.
Cade says that he welcomes other residents of the town to call him and talk with him about the issues facing the town and its future. You can reach him by phone at (803) 315-5909 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
