197 new voters gain a voice

The Seneca mayor and council were told last night that a new voter registration drive has added nearly 200 people to the registration rolls, and the new voters are primed to cast ballots in the November election, as well as Seneca’s next election a year from now.  And Seneca resident Tinishia Graham made clear that those who’ve qualified as new Oconee County voters intend to make their voices known and will be watchful of how incumbent officeholders comport themselves.  One of Seneca’s current city fathers is an African-American minister who wants to give The Journal a chance to follow through with its owner’s promises.  The Rev. W-C Honeycutt Jr. is a member of a new city task force that will examine diversity issues within city government, starting first with the police department.  City Administrator Scott Moulder last night gave a report on what the task force will be about.
