CHERAW – For nearly three decades, Cheraw Town Administrator Bill Taylor has entered the doors of the Cheraw Town Hall located on Market Street as the town’s administrator. However, on July 6, he will be leaving his tenure here as he progresses on to a new position with the Municipal Association of South Carolina in Columbia.
Taylor recently submitted his letter of resignation as Cheraw Town Administrator and will soon join the staff of the MASC as one of their Field Services Managers. The position became available with the MASC after the recent retirement of Wayne George Mullins.
Taylor’s words of sincerity stated in the letter were, “In my new role, I will be providing administrative and technical assistance and support to cities and towns throughout eastern South Carolina, as well as serving as an ambassador to promote the services and programs of the Association,” Taylor said.
“I am like most other public officials in that I have the philosophy of wanting to leave a place better than you find it. I truly feel that this is the case for me and my stay in Cheraw. I was very blessed to be called to service in Cheraw in 1981. During my tenure here, Cheraw has seen many successes but has also faced numerous trials and tribulations. We were able to overcome our set-backs because of the dedicated work and commitment of our staff and elected officials working together in seeing Cheraw succeed.”
Taylor added that he feels that there are many challenges that lie ahead for Cheraw and he sincerely believes that with the council’s commitment to teamwork, issues can be resolved for the betterment of the community as a whole.
“I will certainly miss most my daily interaction with the dedicated staff and employees of Cheraw. Their loyalty and commitment to seeing that Cheraw is a better place is unparalleled. I want to thank all of the elected leadership, both past and present, for allowing me the privilege of serving as a caretaker for this great organization for nearly three decades. I wish nothing but the best for Cheraw in the future and will do whatever I can in my new role to support your efforts.
Mayor Hunter said, “It will be hard to find someone to replace Bill but we all wish him the best in his new job.”
We are like a family here and are also good friends,” Taylor said. “I will miss everyone but I will always stay in touch.”
