Charleston County Council District 8 Candidate Millicent Middleton recently had the opportunity to sit down with Quintin Washington of 'Quintin's Close Ups.' You may watch the full interview here:
Recycling has been integral to helping our local environment. Back in the 1990s, Linda Slater, Director, Betsy Reynolds, Media Director, and Gloriadean Traeye Williams as Education Specialist were inaugural stewards of the Charleston County Recycling Program. She was responsible for developing, implementing, promoting, and educating the residents of Charleston County on managing their garbage and thereby motivated the residents to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. She started several recycling sites and was responsible for the beginning training. My sister was following in our Mother, Hermina B Traeye's, steps. #middleton4u

COUNT ON NEWS 2: JOHNS ISLAND RESIDENTS PROTEST CHARLESTON COUNTY’S PROPOSED LAND PURCHASE
Johns Island residents are taking a stand against Charleston County’s latest land purchase proposal.
“We’re just in 100 percent opposition against it,” Johns Island resident Jonathan Williamson said. “We don’t want it here. We think that the County has so many other resources that they can pull from and put that somewhere else.”
The County wants to purchase land along Humbert and Main Roads to manage storm debris, but neighbors say no.
“For this amount of people to show up here in opposition to this,” Williamson said. “That should be a clear sign to our county leadership that you need to go back to the drawing board and find something else, because we don’t want it here.”
Many worry that if this plan does go through, it will affect their quality of life.
“We’re afraid,” Millicent Middleton, a candidate for Charleston County Council, said. “We’re afraid of losing our fresh air. We’re afraid of our water getting polluted.”
Community members also say there are various infrastructure issues that should be addressed first.
“Where’s the focus on what this community needs versus bringing in some other big problem that’s going to destroy our community,” Middleton said.
Several residents say they feel let down by County Council and don’t trust their leadership.
“People are tired,” Williamson said. “They’re tired of being just ran over. It’s time for a change, they deserve better. The people of John’s Island deserve better, and they should get it.”
News 2 has reached out to Charleston County officials about residents’ concerns, but have yet to hear back.
County Council tabled the proposal when they met on February 1.
LIVE 5 NEWS: CANDIDATE ANNOUNCES RUN FOR COUNTY COUNCIL
MILLICENT MIDDLETON TO ANNOUNCE RUN FOR CHARLESTON COUNTY COUNCIL ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 1
The Campaign of Millicent Middleton is announcing the launching of her campaign for the democratic nomination for the county council seat for district 8. Millicent has a long record of activism in the Charleston area and recently ran for the SC House seat 116. Millicent is well known and well liked among the people of the sea islands and knows their issues intimately from education to infrastructure to the local environment and even the effects of climate change on the local geography and how our local and wider community can do its best to combat that crisis and mitigate its effects, especially on the most prone to its worst effects when the hurricanes strengthen and the ocean rises.
The sea islands require a voice powerful in tone and compassionate in nature pouring from the experiences of a woman who is familiar with the unique and nuanced subculture that comprises western hinterlands of the City of Charleston extending from the detritus-colored tides of the inter-coastal waterway and through the pastoral farmlands of John’s Island. Millicent believes she can fill that role and she will announce at the Charleston County Courthouse at the Four-Corners of Law at the intersection of Meeting and Broad Streets in downtown Charleston at noon on February 1st, 2022.
