How the 278 Corridor Expansion Proposal Will Impact our Community
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is proposing to make improvements to the US 278 corridor between Bluffton and Hilton Head Island, from Moss Creek Drive to Spanish Wells Road. The purpose of this project is to address structural deficiencies at the existing eastbound MacKay Creek bridge, to increase capacity, and reduce congestion along US 278 from Moss Creek Drive to Spanish Wells Road. This project, however, has remained controversial as it will impact some Gullah owned properties whose owners may be forced to relocate.
Join us for the November Democratic Club luncheon to understand the SC Department of Transportation’s options to widen 278 and understand how you can be involved in the process as it moves forward. This issue is critical to our community.

TAKING ACTION NOW!
DINING WITH DEMS
WE NEED HOSTS!
We need to start fundraising now for 2020! Dining With Dems is a lot of fun and a very important piece of our fundraising. You can help by volunteering to host a Dining With Dems event at your home. If you are interested, please contact Sally Nicastre at for details.
We would really love to host some of these events in Bluffton. If you are one of our Bluffton supporters, we hope you will consider volunteering.
The Beaufort County Politics page includes maps of all relevant electoral districts in Beaufort County as well as a list of all incumbents in most elected positions in the County.
Several months before each election, the League of Women Voters website, VOTE411.COM, assembles excellent information about all candidates in national and local elections. You can compare the candidates' positions on a variety of issues and build a personalized sample ballot.
LOWCOUNTRY LIBERALS SUMMIT
The Democratic Club SOB is a member of the Lowcountry Liberals Summit, a coalition of fourteen local liberal organizations. It is a way for liberal-leaning organizations to meet, get to know one another personally, exchange ideas and seek ways to be involved in mutual areas of interest, activities and action. This summit group has significantly enhanced communication, information sharing and cooperative efforts for action, protests, elections, issues awareness and other outcomes.
One of the many benefits is a combined calendar of events of all liberal events in the area. To see this calendar, go to lowcountryliberals.com
