Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams out with COVID-19

Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 6:39 pm News Flash Archive

At today's City Council Meeting, President Ronnie Stevenson announced that Mayor Carolyn McAdams is out with COVID-19. Also sick with the virus is the Mayor's sister and also her secretary, Bettie Ray.

Mayor McAdams is able to converse by telephone from her home, and it was reported that she feels like she has a bad cold. Her sister, however, was reported to be in a more guarded condition at the hospital.

No more details were provided about Ms. Ray's condition.

More details may be found in an article by Gerard Edic at the Greenwood Commonwealth.

The council discussed the Suddenlink crisis, with attorney Don Brock reporting that he had written a letter to the company, outlining its violations of the cable franchise agreement.

Suddenlink was required by Cox Media to pull all four local channels from its line-up, because the two sparring companies could not reach an agreement on an increase in licensing fees that Cox was demanding.
