Has Blackmon-Brace done her research?

City Council showed its support of the University of South Carolina at Lancaster by passing a resolution that asked Gov. Mark Sanford to rescind his proposal to close the university.

The vote was 6 to 1 with councilwoman Linda Blackmon-Brace the lone dissenter. Blackmon-Brace claims she wants more information.

Almost three weeks have passed since the budget was unveiled. How much more time does the councilwoman need? How much research has she done? Is her vote a reflection of her constituents? How anyone could possibly support the closing of this institution disturbs me.
