As a reminder I am sending out this email to serve as an update to my constituents and for people who have written to me with concerns about James Island. You can always read older posts at www.VoteMcMillan.com – for those who have contacted me regarding the 526 issue you can read my previous statement here.

Recently I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time working on the recent string of burglaries on James Island. Many residents are concerned about what town council is doing about this issue. You can be assured that we are working closely with police to increase patrols and making sure that any good lead is fully investigated. As you can see from the following articles there are many actions residents can take to decrease the chance of becoming a victim of a burglary.

1 – Be sure to lock your home and car at all times – many break-ins occur where homes or cars are unlocked

2 – Talk with your neighbors, a tight-knit community makes it easier to spot something out of the ordinary (like a robber in your neighborhood)

3- Is you see something suspicious report it to the proper authorities

Also as many of you already know the Town of James Island has finally passed a budget! After we began to straighten out the mess left by the previous administration we looked at what areas within the government could be cut to reduce wasteful spending. We want to be sure that we continue to provide quality public services like ditch cleaning and trash removal but we want to be sure that we are spending your tax money wisely. You can read more details in this Post and Courier article.

That’s all for now – thank you again for your continued support.




I want to stay in contact with you during my time in office. Periodically, I will send out an email update and post it on my website (www.VoteMcMillan.com). However, this communication shouldn’t just be one-sided – I want to hear from YOU! You can always email me at cartermac@aol.com or call me at 843-814-8684.
