SHIMKUS ON GREENVILLE BUSINESS PARK TOUR

While Congressman John Shimkus was in Greenville Monday to announce his endorsement of Judge Steve McGlynn, he toured Donnewald Distributing and Carlyle Syntec. Shimkus said it was exciting to see the development since he has been involved with the expansion and development of the Greenville Business Park for years.  He said the CSX Select Site news creates a great promise for not just Greenville but for the area.  Shimkus said to have such a level of success at this time, with economic factors being what they are, is a real credit to Greenville city management.
After touring Donnewald Distributing and Carlyle Syntec, Shimkus announced his endorsement of Judge Steve McGlynn for the Fifth District Appellate Court.
