Flood Relief Monday Benefits Mike Roberts Family

Flood Relief Monday at The Warehouse in Conway, November 19th from 11 a.m. til 7 p.m., will benefit the family of Conway native Mike Roberts this week.

The event will be the second in a series of Flood Relief Monday events at The Warehouse established to help local citizens recover from uninsured damage from the recent Hurricane Florence flooding in the county.

Roberts and his family suffered approximately $150,000 in uninsured damages when the flooding from Hurricane Florence brought three feet of water into his riverfront home in Conway.

The family was able to save some possessions from the flooding but the home suffered damage to walls, floors and other areas and furnishings from the floodwaters. With the help of his neighbors and friends, Roberts has begun the lengthy process of tearing out sheetrock and other damaged structural elements and hauling the resulting waste away.

The family plans to restore the home and continue living in their Waccamaw Drive location.

Roberts is a lifelong Conway small business owner and has also been a candidate for political office in Horry County Council District 7. Known as being a spiritual individual, dedicated family man, strong supporter of his local community and ‘Man of his Word’, Roberts has been quick to help others in need through the years.

Monday’s event provides an opportunity for his friends and community to give back to Roberts in his time of need.

Spaghetti plates (eat in or take out) will be sold for $7 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. with all proceeds from the sales being donated to the benefiting family. In addition, from 5 p.m. til 7 p.m. each Monday, diners will be treated to donated live entertainment with local politicians donating their services as celebrity servers with all of their tips being donated to the benefiting family. Citizens can also make direct contributions to the cause. Corporate sponsors pay $100 each week for their sponsorship with all proceeds going to the family.

Mike Roberts Campaign Kickoff Draws Over One Hundred

Over one hundred people attended the kick off Meet and Greet for Mike Roberts’ campaign for Horry County Council District 7.

The event was held at The Warehouse in Conway last week.

A number of county politicians and business people were on hand to help Roberts kick off his campaign.

Sheriff Philip Thompson was joined by local attorney and former state representative George Hearn in a picture with Roberts featured above.

Horry County Auditor Lois Eargle was in attendance as were Horry County council member Jody Prince, state representative Kevin Hardee, former council member and current Horry County Registrar of Deeds Marion Foxworth, former Horry County Treasurer Johnny Allen and longtime Horry County Planning Commission members Don Helms and Dan Gray.

Hearn said of Roberts, “I have known Mike for over 10 years. He is one of the most astute individuals I have encountered and is a man of his word, which, in today’s world is unusual.”

“Mike is a longtime friend and supporter,” said Prince. “His passion for Horry County will be an important addition to county council.”

“Mike is a fine man and will do a good job on council,” said Eargle.

Roberts lost the 2014 general election for Horry County District 7 to 36 year incumbent James Frazier, who resigned his seat March 1st due to declining health.

Roberts is running on a platform of keeping taxes low, supporting growth of small businesses and strong constituent service.

“Government is too quick to raise taxes when it faces some kind of problem,” Roberts said. “We must first look to cut needless spending so we can keep taxes low. “We need to treat all businesses equally, especially small businesses. There is no reason to give incentives to one business while forgetting all the others already operating in the county.”

The Republican and Democratic special primary elections for District 7 will be held May 17, 2016 with primary runoffs on May 31st, if needed. The special general election will be held July 5, 2016.
