Letter | Duckworth has shown he is worth emulating

May 14, 2014 

Greg Duckworth, candidate for S.C. House of Representatives District 104 has shown that he has the characteristics that are worth being followed by others.

Duckworth fulfilled the rigorous requirements to become an Eagle Scout when he was younger. Now, both of his sons have followed in his footsteps and earned Eagle Scout status on their own.

I’ve learned that sons don’t emulate their father unless the father has shown the ability to lead the sons along the right path. Greg Duckworth has obviously done that. The results speak for themselves.

You and I both know that children can’t be “made” to believe the same things as their parents. They have to be taught right and wrong. They need to be led to a pathway and then make their own way based on what they have been taught. If children end up on the right path as they make their way in life, it means that the parent had “the right stuff” and was a good leader.

Greg Duckworth hasn’t just talked the talk. Greg Duckworth has walked the walk. That’s the kind of person I want to represent me in government these days. I’m voting for Greg Duckworth on June 10th and I hope you will do the same. We need his abilities to work for us.
