KellyGram – V.C. Summer Nuclear Meltdown: One Year Later

 

 

Lately, it seems like SCANA is receiving a lot of publicity—but not the good kind. And, while I hate to pile onto the outcry, a year has passed since the V.C. Summer nuclear project was abandoned, and I, along with thousands of others, continue to lament the devastating damage caused by this nuclear disaster of sorts.

The V.C. Summer shutdown was particularly devastating for the residents of Fairfield County, whom I have grown particularly fond of during my time practicing law there. The loss of 6,000 jobs, as well as decades of future income from a stable industry, has brought this county economically to its knees. Though Fairfield is the ninth smallest county in South Carolina, it has the highest unemployment rates in the state, and the level of poverty there is alarming. With the loss of V.C. Summer, hope for many residents there looks as bleak as the unoccupied storefronts that line the streets of downtown Winnsboro. Nonetheless, as described in this compelling interview with Senator Mike Fanning, the strong citizens of Fairfield County love their home, and they have come together in this time of crisis with shared determination to rebuild and improve the quality of life in their community.

The Mike Kelly Law Group is very proud of being woven into the fabric of Fairfield County, and we are grateful to be in a position to help the fine folks there during this trying time. There is a reason Fairfield County is known for its beauty, its natural resources, and its people, and I am hopeful that these characteristics will enable its residents to rise despite such a devastating setback. Prayers for Winnsboro and Fairfield County!

Have a blessed weekend, 

Mike Kelly
