The Greenwood SC Chamber of Commerce is inviting Greenwood voters to explore its newly updated Yes For Greenwood website www.yesforgreenwood.com.
The new website has been designed to provide the ultimate user-friendly experience with information on all of the 27 projects included in proposed Greenwood Capital Project Sales Tax Referendum on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The website includes project details, answers to frequently asked questions, an interactive Greenwood County map with project locations, and links to articles that further detail information for Greenwood voters to make an informed decision. The website is designed to be compatible across all platforms (desktop, mobile device, etc).
Additionally, the Chamber, in conjunction with the Yes For Greenwood Campaign, has scheduled over a dozen public forums over the next two months for Greenwood citizens to become more informed about the proposed projects.
According to Chamber President Angelle LaBorde, “The Chamber’s Board of Directors have endorsed the proposed referendum and are actively working to educate voters about the benefits of each of the projects.”
