WHY we need to keep mike at cpw serving greenwood residents

Mike's CPW Accomplishments

Mike has been part of the Greenwood community for 26 years, working tirelessly to make it a better place to live, work, build a business, and raise a family.  Here are just a few of Mike's acomplishments while serving as a CPW  commisioner.


  • Mike fought to maintain the lowest utility rates possible. Gas, electric, and water rates are among the lowest in South Carolina. CPW electric rates are the lowest in the State, and natural gas rates are the fourth lowest. In fact, CPW has not raised its utility rates in over eight years.
  • Mike insisted on the restructure of CPW’s and GMD’s Finance Departments. CPW has a 70 -million-dollar budget and GMD has a 16-million-dollar budget, they must be run like a business. Mike  established “rate stabilization” funds for water, electric, and gas to avoid rate increases and level out the impact of weather and other economic factors.
  • Mike set annexation of subdivisions and businesses into the City as major priorities.  Mike supported the extension of financial incentives that encourage commercial, industrial, and residential development within the City of Greenwood and Greenwood County.
  • Mike continues to promote an aggressive approach to bring sewer to homes surrounding the lake  as well as within our City limits. He insisted on GMD and CPW applying for, and receiving  grants to place water and sewer lines for low and moderate income residents.
  • Mike spearheaded CPW’s support of the Cambridge Street Park. Mike held the line for eleven years on  not selling the old CPW Water Plant property. This eventually brought about a successful  property transfer for a Grace Street park.
