    ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH COUNCILMAN GREG LUHMAN’S COMMENTS. THE GOOSE CREEK TRANSIT SERVICE BENEFITS THE ELDERLY AND MANY SUCH PEOPLE AS MY DAUGHTER WHO HAS A DISABILITY AND IS UNABLE TO DRIVE, SHE NEEDS TRANSPORTATION FOR A 6 MILES ROUNDTRIP TO HER WORKPLACE TO MAINTAIN HER EMPLOYMENT.SUCH SITUATIONS WITH THE CURRENT SERVICES ARE A WIN -WIN FOR SHERIDAN ALL THE WAY AROUND – ECONOMY AND OTHER WISE. SHERIDAN IS SO BLESSED BY HAVING THIS SERVICE. KEEP IT GOING AND FUND IT!!!
