The Nerve: Driving the Debate in SC

with one comment

The Policy Council’s new website The Nerve is already driving the debate in Columbia. In a story on Sunday, The Post & Courier examined the real cost of the Boeing incentives package and used portions of The Nerve’s own reporting from earlier in the week.

Also this weekend, the Sun News editorialized on openness and ethics in South Carolina’s state government and cited the Policy Council’s efforts on  these issues:

The S.C. Policy Council, a nonpartisan think tank that promotes open government and fiscal responsibility, asked a wide swath of state officials for any e-mails from their private accounts to registered lobbyists or the principles of employees that do business with the state. “They all closed ranks,” council president Ashley Landess said. “They basically coughed up nothing.”

  1. I’m sure the’SCPC’ didn’t really expect these cohorts to cough up anything less than stained phlegm.
    Keep up the good work – keep these guys on the run. “You can run but you can’t hide” as the saying goes. (I think a GW Bush speechwriter wrote that)
    They meant for that to be directed at terrorists. Our SC officials are, in this instance, economic terrorists.They scratch each other like monkeys looking for bugs.
