AT&T Provides $75,000 to Assist Economic Development Efforts in Dorchester County


St. George, SC, June 20, 2017 — AT&T* is providing $75,000 to Dorchester County to support infrastructure improvements at the Ridgeville Industrial Campus to help recruit industrial manufacturing businesses, including Sundaram-Clayton Limited, to the county. 

Jack Mitchell, AT&T Regional Director for External Affairs, presented the check to Dorchester County Council Vice Chairman George Bailey during the Council’s meeting yesterday.


“I have long supported public policy that encourages the private sector to foster infrastructure improvements like these. A community’s economic health depends in large part on the involvement and support of the private sector to help drive job growth.” – state Sen. John Matthews   


“When the business community works in cooperation with government to help attract new businesses and new jobs to a community, it benefits everyone, beginning with local citizens. This announcement is excellent news for Dorchester County.” – state Rep. Patsy Knight


“We appreciate the support of AT&T, as well as our other community partners, in helping get the vital infrastructure in place to attract quality employers and jobs to Dorchester County. Thanks to those efforts, and the dedicated work of our Council and Staff, I’m sure this will be the first of many projects to come in the Ridgeville Industrial Campus” –Dorchester County Council Chairman Jay Byars


“We are pleased to support economic development efforts in Dorchester County, which help build an even stronger, more diversified economy here in the Low Country.” – Jack Mitchell, regional director of External affairs for AT&T South Carolina.
