Making Democracy Work

Positions Adopted by LWV of the Clemson Area

Education

  • The LWVCA believes our schools should be adequately financed. Therefore, we support increased taxes, if necessary, for Pickens, Oconee and Anderson County schools.

  • The LWVCA supports greater fiscal autonomy for the School Boards of Trustees in Pickens, Oconee and Anderson Counties.

  • We support returning to the current structure of the Pickens County School Board with six area seats and three at-large seats.

Growth Management

  • We recommend that we continue our growth management study focusing on the three county area and revise our current position in support of local comprehensive planning the light of the study adopted in 2004.
