TO EXPRESS THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA TO THE FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS OF EASTOVER'S MAYOR, THE HONORABLE LEWIS N. SCOTT OF RICHLAND COUNTY, WHO PASSED AWAY ON SUNDAY, MAY 14, 1995.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn of the death on Sunday, May 14, 1995, of The Honorable Lewis N. Scott of Richland County, who had been serving as the Mayor of the Town of Eastover for the past twenty-three years; and
Whereas, after taking office in 1972 as the first African-American elected Mayor in a Richland County municipality, Mayor Scott was involved in nearly every town activity; and
Whereas, he labored tirelessly in numerous areas for the betterment of the Town of Eastover and always had the town's best interests at heart; and;
Whereas, through much of his time as Mayor, he worked for the Richland County Public Works Department, leaving in late 1991 because of health problems and since then, he worked only for Eastover; and
Whereas, during much of his tenure, he moved the rural town slowly forward; he oversaw the installation of a sewer system; he helped keep the town bus system running; and he was instrumental in starting the annual Eastover Parade and Festival, which draws the entire town for a celebration; and
Whereas, Lewis Scott's years as Mayor weren't always easy, money was short, and he often had to juggle dwindling resources in a town that seemed to need so much; and
Whereas, Mayor Scott was fifty-six years young, and ran for a sixth term in 1992, even as his name was added to a list of those eligible for a heart transplant; and
Whereas, he was a devoted public servant who gave his time, talents, and energy without hesitation for the betterment of the Town of Eastover, Richland County, and the entire State of South Carolina;
Whereas, he was an outstanding individual who will long be remembered and greatly missed by all who knew him; and
Whereas, we, the members of the General Assembly recognize the courage and fighting spirit displayed for twenty-three years by Mayor Lewis Scott. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, express sorrow upon the death of the Honorable Lewis N. Scott and want his family and many friends to know that they are uppermost in our thoughts.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the family of The Honorable Lewis N. Scott.
