Edgar Dyer, Chairman Ride III Sales Tax Commission Sends Thank You Letter to MB and NMB Chamber Presidents
Please accept my sincere thanks for a job well done in putting together the Ride III proposal for the ballot. Your diligent work, along with your unselfish and non-partisan participation, resulted in an overwhelming vote of confidence and approval from the voters yesterday. Future generations here in the Independent Republic will benefit greatly from our efforts and I am proud to have served with you.
I would also like to thank Brad Dean, the Myrtle Beach Chamber and the Grand Strand Business Alliance, along with Marc Jordan of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber, for their leadership in funding and organizing the highly effective campaign that explained the proposal to the voting public and urged them to vote for it. Their efforts were indispensable to the success of this initiative. I am told that we carried every precinct but one and that we only lost that precinct by one vote. That may be a record for Horry County and I think we may have set some other election records, as well, with this ballot question. Thanks also to our very able and capable staff -- Steve Gosnell, Sandee Garigen, Lisa Bourcier and a host of others -- for their professionalism, dedication and counsel.
This was truly a team effort in every sense of the word.
Chairman Ride III Sales Tax Commission Board
