We heard a rumor and checked into it - and then we found out that it really was Gary Simrill's birthday. We were told he was turning 37 today, but we're not sure if that part is true.
For those of you who don't know York County's senior House member, who is in his 21st year of service in the Rock Hill-based District 46 seat, reaching out to wish him a Happy Birthday could be a good way to start.
Not bad for a guy who was first elected in his twenties.
Happy Birthday Gary!
