U.S. Senator Barack Obama’s South Carolina campaign will host a series of town hall meetings Friday and Saturday in Bamberg, Dorchester, Chesterfield and Clarendon counties.
John Boyd, president of the National Black Farmers Association, will talk to farmers and local families about Obama’s plan to help support rural communities in South Carolina. The first meeting is 2 p.m. Friday at the Bamberg Civic Center, 2477 Main Hwy in Bamberg.
In November, Obama unveiled a rural plan for South Carolina that included increasing access to health care, creating new jobs and putting a new emphasis on recruiting quality teachers.
