tea-party-dessertGovernment workers in the Low country did some holiday partying on the taxpayers’ dime.

The City of Charleston spent more than $10,000 on various holiday parties, Dorchester County spent more than $7,000 while the City of North Charleston spent $1,700 in taxpayer money.

Lawmakers like Mayor Keith Summey defended the spending, calling it a gesture of goodwill for the city’s hard-working, low-paid public employees.
