[ARCHIVED] City Council members make honor roll for completing coursework in governance

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Feb. 16, 2022) –  We’re proud to announce that the City of Beaufort has been added to the 2022 South Carolina Municipal Elected Officials Institute of Government’s Honor Roll. The Honor Roll recognizes annually those municipal councils in which all sitting members are graduates of the Institute.  

In the past year, City Council Members Neal Lipsitz and Mitch Mitchell, who took office in December of 2020, went through the coursework required by the Institute of Government. These included both online and in-person classes. The coursework is designed to give municipal elected officials the essential knowledge needed to establish good public policy, and included budgeting, municipal finance, and economic development.

In previous years, Mayor Stephen Murray, Mayor Pro Tem Mike McFee, and City Council Member Phil Cromer completed the coursework required to graduate from the Institute.

“I was extraordinarily proud of Team Beaufort that out of the 270-plus municipalities across South Carolina, only 11 of them are on the Honor Roll for having 100% of their council completing the Institute, and this council is one of the 11,” Mayor Stephen Murray said at the City Council meeting on Feb. 8.
