The Lowcountry American Dream Council rallied Thursday near the Richard V. Woods Memorial Bridge to push for passage of a bill being debated in Congress that would create jobs for repairing bridges and other infrastructure, according to a news release from the local council's coordinator, Jim Hoerner.
Nineteen members of the council, which serves Beaufort and Jasper counties, held signs at the corner of Bay and Carteret streets from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., including ones that said, "Pass the Jobs Bill for Bridge Repair," said Hoerner, of Sun City Hilton Head, in a news release.
