38 years reporting and analyzing for the Post & Courier.
A man who knows what works.
On Citizen Involvement in Education: ”I want to get more volunteers involved. It takes an army of volunteers coming to schools to help kids with homework or read to the little ones,” Fennell says.
On New High School in McClellanville: “I really am concerned about the school board budget,” Fennell says. “They’re talking about $35 million for a school that right now, they have 127 high school students in that area? And I understand the youth population in that area is dwindling … It’s just not an efficient way to spend tax dollars.”
On What He Has Seen: ”I covered City of Charleston government, North Charleston, Sullivan’s Island, every government out there at one time or the other. I covered Hollywood when they had fistfights at council meetings,” Fennell says. “I think in my 38 years, having covered every beat, I’ve seen the good and the bad in everybody, and I have an idea what people want.”
