I have been a resident of Greenwood for many years and I am proud of my hometown. We have many good citizens who will help in time of need. I thank God for this country, this state and this good community. We have so much to be thankful for. We all should be thankful for the freedoms and advantages we have in Greenwood.

We have a mayoral race coming up. I am happy we have two good young men who are running for this office. I think either of these men will do a good job. I will vote for Doug Kinslow since I have worked with him on several projects. Also, he has worked for the city for the past seven years and with the present city council. I hope you all will vote in the election and whoever wins will work for unity and the good of the community.

Yours truly,

Dr. James Burgess
