New Tega Cay Mayor George Sheppard has written one of his first letters to Tega Cay residents. The letter is upbeat and encourage residents to vote on February 9th to fill the vacant council seat. Read George’s letter below:
This is the first of many steps that I will be making in an effort toward effective communication with the residents of Tega Cay via email. Communication can only work if I hear from you, so please, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (803) 396-7706. I welcome comments and suggestions from you.
It has been 2 weeks since I was sworn in as your Mayor. Thank you for the honor and the privilege. As you know, we have many challenges in front of us, but together we can work to face our future in the city.
The first challenge we have is to fill the Council seat I vacated when I was elected Mayor. Please learn about each of the candidates, make an informed decision, and select the person you feel will represent you well on the Council. Election Day is February 9th, so please get out and vote. If you haven’t heard: the poll workers have volunteered their time to save that cost to the city for the special election. I thank them for their commitment and generosity in donating their time!
On Sunday, February 7th a Storm water Q&A session is scheduled at the Glennon Center from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. This will be the first of regular events that will take place when new situations are presented to the residents. If you have questions about Storm Water, please plan to attend.
Getting involved: there will be a Volunteer Fair at the Glennon Center on Sunday, February 14th from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.. The purpose of the Fair is to show you what the various city volunteer committees do for all of we residents. Many years ago, Tega Cay began with volunteers and volunteerism at its core; we still rely on volunteers today. The committee members will provide information about each committee and will be recruiting new members. Without these committees many of the services we have would not be possible. Please plan to attend for information and consider volunteering for one of these city committees.
If you haven’t already, please check out www.tegacaysc.org which is the city’s website. The site has been improved to provide a lot of valuable information about the city and surrounding areas. Please help by making suggestions for future improvements.
I encourage you to sign up for the free Nixle email alert system that you can find on the city website. This is a new free,
web-based real-time communication tool that will be utilized by the Tega cay police and the city to provide Amber Alerts, Neighborhood and Community meetings and events, road closures and more. Recently information regarding the winter weather was sent out to those signed up on the Nixle system. Again, I suggest you sign up for this free service. This is another way your police department and city plan to provide better communications with the residents of Tega Cay.
Once again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the City we love.
