Pat Gibson-Hye to challenge Ed Robinson


Time and time again, the one question we always hear residents of Florence ask is: When are we going to get rid of Ed Robinson? That question reaches across lines of race, class, age, sex, religion and politics. Well...this is the year Florence.

Monday morning, February 15th, Pat Gibson-Hye (shown to the left talking along with Florence County Solicitor Ed Clements and Steve Wukela) will be formally announcing her candidacy for Florence City Council's District 2 seat. The announcement will take place at the Horne's Restaurant located at 820 S. Irby Street in Florence and is hosted by the First Monday Breakfast Club. Admission is $8 per person, which includes a buffet breakfast.

So stop all the wondering. Come out and show your support to a quality candidate who is willing to throw her hat in the ring and challenge the guy you all complain about.

BTW, in case you were wondering, District 2 of the City of Florence runs all the way from Wilson Road, down Oakland Avenue, to Irby, then to Pamplico Hwy by way of National Cemetary and Irby, down through Pine Forest and over to Howe Springs Road. That's a large swath that touches all those groups named above. If you really want to replace Ed Robinson, it's going to take Blacks, Whites, Men, Women, Rich and Poor. The election will be closed to one party voting. Meaning, voters will only be allowed to vote in one of the two party's primaries. In other words, if you vote in the Republicanparty primary for Federal, State and County, you cannot cross over to vote in the Democratic primary for City offices. One or the other, folks.

Pat Gibson-Hye knows me, and I don't think she likes me - 'Nuff Said..

Well, Pat is a woman, so I just assume there's a 3 out of 5 chance that you've done something to piss her off
