After the 2016 November elections, our new Council member, Council C. F. “Chris” Sumpter, II won the District 1 County Council seat. We welcome Councilman Sumpter to our County Team and wish him great success in his first four-year term. County Council District 1 falls primarily in the northern region of our County around the Rembert/Rafting Creek area, but as far south as the Cherryvale community. He has hit the ground running meeting with numerous constituents in his district to determine how he may best serve our County.
Funded by a three-way partnership of Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter Smarter Growth Initiative, the Development Board’s mission is to increase per capita income by creating jobs and luring capital investment to our community.
