    You’re a good soul, Tony. Sharing strengths, work ethics, and your commitment to a greater good is rare, but so vital to the individual and our collective benevolence.

    I tried liking this, but it doesn’t indicate that above under FB. Is there something I need to do or does the page need an update?

    Listening to this, I heard Mayor Tecklenburg discussing his heartfelt, soft spoken drive to be persistent. Ending one of those thoughts he said, “I have to stick with it.” It struck me as a stark contrast to others who would just be happy to “stick it to the masses”.

    I don’t live in the vicinity any longer, but I
    have L💞VED ones who do and wish to thrive in the Low Country, so please know that I’m grateful for these pursuits you’re addressing.

    And thank you, Tony, for highlighting the best to what we aspire.
