As reported in the Aiken Standard today the Lower Savannah Council of Governments has refused to honor Senator Ryberg's freedom of information request for the names of the individuals who contributed to the GVW Incorporation campaign. This is unfortunate. When citizens are asked to vote on such an important issue they should have access to all the facts before they make a decision. Charles Hilton who is Chairman of the GVW incorporation committee expressed his frustration that Senator Ryberg who is "from another area" is criticizing people for having a choice. It should be noted that Mr. Hilton actually lives in another area that will not be incorporated as do three other members of the six person committee. There are many rumors going around concerning the Incorporation issue and a little bit of sunshine would certainly help.
