Vote Alesia Smith For Clemson City Council 2018
"I am running for City Council to empower our voices and reclaim our community. I will work tirelessly to protect our residents from losing their property in the name of growth and development. I believe we have a responsibility to provide various ways for our residents to be involved in the future development of Clemson. Important issues like affordable housing, safety, infrastructure, economic stability, family-oriented events and recreational activities are critical to providing a community that we can all be very proud to call home. I will focus on these areas and always put our people and community first."
