New blood is always welcome. Hopefully he will make some progress in our state. I don't know how much influence this position has though. Any info would be welcome.

In the article, he did say he'd be spending a whole lot of time in the Upstate, so I hope we reap some immediate benefits from his appointment. I'm ready to see a better alliance between all regions of the state.
