OnPoint on WACH Fox: Importance of local elections
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at the importance of local elections.
Tuesday is election day for a number of local races all around the state. Everything from mayor to city council, county council members and other leaders in towns, cities, counties, and other municipalities will be decided by you, the voter.
You’ve heard it said that all politics is local, meaning that decisions made on the local level so strongly impact people's lives, that for many, the local races become the most important of all.
So whether it’s Chapin, Walterboro, Sumter, Orangeburg, Columbia and beyond, voters we will be making some very big decisions this week.
Here in the Midlands, one of the races getting a lot of attention is the Columbia city council race between incumbent Sam Davis and challenger Chris Sullivan.
Both of them are on this week's program along with local political analysts to talk about the importance of local politics.
