David Merchant

Non-partisan candidate for Sumter City Council Ward 6 District 6.          

Occupation: Owner – Merchant Iron Works Inc.

Education: Irmo High School 1993, Clemson University 1997

Experience in Political or Related Positions: This is my first time running for political office

Why should voters choose you in this election?

  • I will bring the same COMMON SENSE approach I use everyday in my business to city government.
  • I have the energy and enthusiasm to ask the tough questions to protect our citizen's best interest and tax dollars.
  • I will build on the work of those before me and continue the fight to keep Shaw AFB and the Third Army in our community

I want to help make Sumter an inviting place with opportunity so mine and other children will want.
