City of Greer, SC Event Center Pricing Presentation
In 2008, I founded the City of Greer Event Center's pricing for their annual fee schedule that I presented to city coucil. While I met with City Administrator, Ed Driggers, and through these meetings shaped what the city started with and remains in place today. Other than the nepotismish approach that the City of Greer has and Ed Drigger's peculiar question to me about not having children a week before I was let go due to the 2008 economic downturn, I had a good experience in the town over from my hometown after being away for 15 years. By the way Eddie, I have a daughter now, so I guess if that were the case in 2008, I wouldn't have lost my job?!?!
