My name is GP McLeer, and I'm running for Mayor of Fountain Inn.
I fell in love with Fountain Inn while eating a bird dog at the old Weston Grill at a cast party for one of the first theatre productions held at the Younts Center for Performing Arts. I realized then that I was not only playing a role on our community's stage, but also in our city's story, and I fell in love.
Fountain Inn is a community where every person plays a part in its story. We're small enough that you can become a regular after two visits, but we've created a buzz big enough that visitors stop by just to see what we've been able to build.
Ever since that first bird dog, I've put my love into action. I bought my first house here, convinced my family to move here, proposed to my wife on Main Street, moved the office of my statewide nonprofit here, have hosted trivia at Growler Haus for three years, became Chair of the Chamber of Commerce's board, and a member of the Chorale's board.
I love this community, and I would be honored to give back by serving as your Mayor.
