The Stories of Upstate #216: (Amy Doyle) "I had REALLY BIG hair as a teen and my track coach hated it.

                                Our 216th story comes from Greenville City Councilwoman, Amy Doyle.

What leads someone to be a city councilperson?  For Greenville City Councilwoman, Amy Doyle, it started with being from a long line of very active women.  Add a drive that motivates someone to train for and run marathons.  Finally, it was a desire to see the perspective of a mother and her concerns for the city where she is going to raise her children being reflected on that city's governing body.  A decade later and Councilwoman Doyle continues to bring that passion, drive and perspective to the job of making Greenville, #yeahthatGreenville!
