LETTERS: On Leatherman and the Clintons

LETTERS: On Leatherman and the Clintons

Dale M. Rhodes, Richmond, Va.: “The president-elect would, in my most considered and humble opinion, be best advised to appoint Senate President Pro Tempore Leatherman as Secretary of State. I believe any citizen who has closely followed the pro tem’s career in the service of South Carolina, whose greatness is his only ambition, would agree that Hugh K. Leatherman would bring to that office an abundance of wisdom and gravitas not known since the days of Secretary James Byrnes, and to the lasting security of this country and the fame of the Palmetto State.”

Emergency Management organizations across the ENTIRE state depend on SCETV towers and related structure for backup emergency communications. “
