FLORENCE, SC – State Representative Jay Jordan has a new job.
No, not the one he’s running for (Senate District 31). He will have to wait until January 25 and March 29 to see if he gets it.
Jordan, a Republican presenting parts of southern and western Florence to the South Carolina House, has been appointed by State Representative Phillip Lowe, the new chair of the Florence County delegation, to serve as chair of the delegation’s economic development subcommittee.
Jordan’s first acting as chair of the delegation committee came on Friday afternoon when he chaired a closed-door roundtable featuring the leaders of Drs. Bruce & Lee Foundation, Darla Moore Foundation, Marlboro Development Team, Santee Electric, Northeastern Strategic Alliance, Florence County Progress, Grand Florence Chamber of Commerce, Florence, Florence County, Florence One Schools, Francis Marion University and Florence-Darlington Technical College from the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology on the Florence-Darlington Technical College campus.
The meeting also featured comments from South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Harry Lightsey, Rocky Pearce of Florence County Progress, Jeff McKay of the Northeastern Strategic Alliance and Florence County Council Chairman Willard Dorriety.
