MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (November 22, 2017) – Newly elected Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie announced today his selection for the Committees of Council assignments. The Town has twelve Committees of Council, each represented by three to four members of Town Council.
"The citizens of Mount Pleasant have selected outstanding council members who each bring experience, talent, and ideas to the equation. I have tried to match each council member with their strengths and expressed committee preferences. Until the final new member is selected in the special election, I have filled each committee (except one) to be able to reach a quorum and to function. We have work to do. There will be some re-assignments once we have a complete council. Our goal is to be the most effective council ever," said Mayor Haynie.
