Speakers announced for Monday’s “Save our Jobs” rallies

On Monday, June 8, concerned citizens from all over South Carolina will hold rallies to demand that Governor Mark Sanford put aside his national ambitions and instead address the jobs crisis the state is currently in. South Carolina’s unemployment rate is at a record high and teachers are being fired throughout the state. Law enforcement budgets have been cut to the bone.

Rallies will be held at noon in Greenville, Florence, and North Charleston. A 5:30 PM rally will be held in Columbia. Locations and speakers are as followed:

North Charleston: Park Circle at 12:00 PM. Speakers will include Mayor Keith Summey, State Representative David Mack and State Representative Anne Peterson Hutto.

Greenville: Greenville County Square (301 University Ridge) at 12:00 PM. Speakers will include 2009 SC Teacher of the Year Bryan Coburn, unemployed public school teacher Nanette Nilsson, and recent college graduate Frank Holleman Jr.

Florence: Carver Elementary School (515 N Cashua Drive) at 12:00 PM. Speakers will include Florence District One School Superintendent Larry Jackson, State Representative Terry Alexander and State Representative Robert Williams.

Columbia: State House Steps (North Side) at 5:30 PM. Speakers will include Richland County Treasurer David Adams, State Representative Anton Gunn, and State Senator John Scott.

*Additional speakers may be announced Monday
