The Jasper Port and the Governor's legacy


Governor Mark Sanford has failed in many ways. The man just seems unable to work to have the South Carolina legislature go along with him on needed reforms.

However, one item Mark Sanford might redeem himself upon is the planned port at the mouth of the Savannah River in Jasper County.

Unlike other initiatives by the Governor, Governor Sanford and his people have been working with others, especially folks from the state of Georgia, to make the new port a real possibility. While the port might be years away in the making, it must be made clear that Sanford deserves credit for getting things started.

Governor Sanford's work with Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue on the Jasper Port issue will likely prove to be Governor Sanford's greatest contribution to South Carolina as Governor. The development of a port in Jasper County will create ten times the jobs BMW did in the upstate during the Campbell years and will make South Carolina an economic engine for years to come.

Democrats and Republicans who have a problem with how Sanford handles the office of governor have legitimate beefs. As Governor, Sanford has made a mess of so many things. However, on the Jasper port issue, Sanford has so far performed well. As such, Governor Sanford and his people deserve credit.

Now, if the Governor and his people could find the ability and sense to work with the South Carolina General Assembly on other issues, the Governor's eight years in office would not be considered the great waste so many pundits dismiss it as.

  6. FITS says FU McCartySeptember 24, 2008

    No port can contain my huge statement of manhood...just ask the FITS girls or my wife...she puts up with me because she knows what she will get at the end of the day.

    A Jasper Port can not hold this...nor can two hands from a woman all but afraid to take the FITS all the way.

  9. For the record, no one pays me a dime to blog. I call it like I see it, with no apologies. Tis the freedom of being poor and without power.
