January 2015

Happy New Year! I want to express my heartfelt thanks to you, the residents, for allowing me to serve as Mayor. I am proud to say, that during my first year, the Town of Lexington had one of its most successful years yet! 

First and foremost, I believe we have the most top-notch police force in the state and in 2014, the Lexington Police Department was named "Agency of the Year" by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS). The award recognizes the LPD's efforts in excelling in the area of DUI arrest, DUI victim services and anti-underage drinking programs in South Carolina for 2013. 

In addition, the town won the 2014 Elite Achievers Award from the South Carolina Chapter of Government Management Information Sciences for our Patrol Division Device Management Project. The award showcases the efforts of our Planning, Building and Technology Department and our Police Department. The project focused on providing effective and efficient use of the patrol officers "mobile office" inside the patrol car. 

Finally, the Town of Lexington unveiled several Vision Plan projects including the Interstate 20/Sunset Blvd Interchange Beautification Project which has transformed the corridor into an attractive "front porch" entrance into Lexington, providing landscaping and signage welcoming travelers to our wonderful town with a beautiful landmark that is unique to the Town of Lexington! 

The town also opened Fourteen Mile Creek Trail, a 3/4 mile loop and features bridges, educational kiosks and an outdoor learning center. This is a perfect way to take in the fresh air and enjoy the scenic nature and natural beauty of the Town of Lexington! 

Town Council and I look forward to accomplishing even more in 2015, as we are Focusing on the Future!
