Tomorrow afternoon, 2008 (and 2012?) Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will visit face-to-face with local business leaders in our community.

The small gathering will be at Meetze Plumbing where Kevin, Charlene and Calvin have graciously agreed to serve as hosts. On hand will be a handful of community business leaders who will certainly share their concerns and struggles over the past few years as they continue to struggle in this economy.

As a supporter of Governor Romney’s past efforts to improve our country, I’m honored that he chose our community for his first South Carolina stop since announcing his exploratory committee a few weeks ago. It’s not often national figures visit the Irmo, Chapin area and I welcome any that choose to visit our friends and neighbors.
