TO COMMEND THE HONORABLE ROGER M. YOUNG OF CHARLESTON FOR HIS EXEMPLARY SERVICE AS A MEMBER OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE OCCASION OF HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE HOUSE AND TO WISH HIM THE VERY BEST IN ALL HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly have learned with deep regret that the Honorable Roger M. Young, a member of the House of Representatives from Charleston County representing House District 117, comprised of portions of Charleston and Berkeley Counties, has indicated that it is his intention not to offer for reelection to the House of Representatives; and
Whereas, Roger Young first began his service in the House in 1991, and during his tenure as a member of the General Assembly he has represented the citizens of his district and the State of South Carolina with distinction; and
Whereas, his experience as a practicing lawyer and former municipal court judge has enabled him to be an effective voice on the House Judiciary Committee where he presently serves as well as on the Education and Public Works Committee where he previously served; and
Whereas, he also has been an influential member of the Charleston County and Berkeley County Legislative Delegations. On the Charleston County Legislative Delegation, he serves as its Courts and Rules Committee Chairman and presently as Secretary of the Delegation; and
Whereas, he has played a key role in the development of important legislation dealing with legal and judicial practice and procedure where his advice and counsel is valued and appreciated by his colleagues; and
Whereas, it is with considerable sadness that the members of the General Assembly shall say goodbye to one of its most knowledgeable and likable members at the end of the 1994 session; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly thank Roger Young on behalf of the people of his district, the other citizens of Charleston and Berkeley Counties, and the State of South Carolina for all he has done to make state government an effective instrument for helping the citizens of this State upon the occasion of his retirement from the South Carolina House of Representatives. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby commend the Honorable Roger M. Young of Charleston for his exemplary service as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives upon the occasion of his retirement from the House and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Honorable Roger M. Young.
