WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fairfield County Council Chairman Billy Smith, fellow Councilman Neal Robinson and Fairfield County Sheriff Will Montgomery were invited with a group of other South Carolina officials to tour the White House and meet with administration officials to discuss how national issues and the administration’s policies toward them affect our local communities.

They also were able to network and get contact information for people in positions that might allow them to help the county with various matters now and in the future. Among other high level administration officials, Smith said they met with OMB Director Mulvaney and Special Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway.

“We discussed a lot of issues, but trade and tariffs, the need for more and better infrastructure, and addressing the opioid crisis were the leading topics,” Smith said
