McMaster and Melock | Honest government is essential to our prosperity

It’s not a secret anymore. It seems that the world has finally discovered South Carolina. Those of us who live here have known it all along: no other place has the beaches, mountains, salt marshes, temperate climate, forests, wildlife and fertile farmlands that we do. When you combine that with strong people, vigorous research universities, top ranked technical training, right-to-work laws and deep-water port access, you get what we are experiencing today: a state in the spotlight, where world class business and industry thrive, where knowledge-based innovation, agricultural diversity and tourism flourish, and where people understand that our priceless natural heritage and great economic potential can not only co-exist, but can compliment and strengthen each other.
