We live in the fastest growing region of our state, yet our infrastructure, roads, and bridges have not kept pace with our growth. With our rising population and tremendous economic growth, it is time our roads and bridges get the attention they deserve to make them safe. Due to conservative state planning and budgeting, SC has billions in surplus revenues. I will work with the Charleston Delegation to bring home our fair share of dollars to fix our roads, interstates, and bridges.
Every child deserves a quality education. As an elected member of the Charleston County School Board from 2014-2018, I saw firsthand how our tax dollars did not find their way into the classroom. I plan to not only stand up for the taxpayers of District 80, but ensure our tax dollars go to giving teachers raises and improving the quality of education our children receive.
Transparency & Communication
Government is designed to work for you and your family. During my years as President of the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce and the Coastal Carolina Council of the Boy Scouts, I worked to streamline and modernize the way we communicated to the community. As your next State House Representative, transparency and communication will be a top priority of mine. I will listen to your input and always update you on matters of importance on the local and state level.
