Is Daniel Island seceding? And if so, why and from whom?

secede

Wow, we have a little firestorm brewing here on Daniel Island and while I don’t think it equals Fort Sumter, there is talk of seceding from Berkeley County and annexing ourselves with Charleston County. To be honest, I don’t know all of the details but here is a link to a Post and Courier columnist named Brian Hicks who attempts to summarize the issue: (http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20130908/PC16/130909471/1009/berkeley-county-x2019-s-loss-would-be-charleston-county-x2019-s-gain&source=RSS)

Tonight there is an island wide meeting of the Daniel Island Neighborhood Association (DINA) and I’m sure that will be topic #1. Hopefully I will be able to glean some more info from this meeting and be able to form an opinion and pass on what I’ve learned. Needless to say, it’s a hot topic and the ramifications of secession from Berkeley County are varied and complex.

Secession is a word that reasonates deeply with the residents of South Carolina and justifiably so. Hopefully the bombardements will be civil from both sides and we can seek a solution which will satisfy everyone. I’ll keep you posted . . . Better yet, show up tonight and voice your opinion!
