Siders elected treasurer of LSCOG board
Andrew Siders, who is Aiken County Council’s vice chairman, is the 2018-2019 treasurer of the Lower Savannah Council of Governments’ board of directors.
He will serve as the vice chairman in 2019-2020 and as the chairman in 2020-2021.
Siders became treasurer in June after the board elected him to the position. A Nomination Committee made up of three board members recommended him.
“I realize the importance of the mission that the COG (Council of Governments) fulfills, and I’m proud to be part of such a great organization,” said Siders, who owns an Allstate insurance agency in Aiken.
The Lower Savannah Council of Governments, or LSCOG, serves Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun and Orangeburg counties.
According to the LSCOG website, the organization helps local governments “develop, implement and administer plans, programs and projects in cooperation with local, state and national stakeholders.”
Its goal is to improve the quality of life for residents of the Lower Savannah Region.
