I support Mark Sanford for Congress. I met Mr. Sanford as our governor. I took my sons to Columbia to discuss our appalling education system. Amazingly, I met privately with Gov. Sanford. He was well informed about my concerns and was able to offer viable solutions. I am still amazed by the experience – his knowledge and my access to him.
I could mention that while governor, Sanford eliminated almost $1 billion in debt and deficit, that he was ranked the most financially conservative governor in the nation, and that he instituted common sense reforms that streamlined government (like DMV reforms that shortened wait times from 1 hour to 15 minutes), or I could say that Sanford was ranked No. 1 in Congress for his efforts to limit federal spending and taxation, or that he returned $250,000 in unspent office funds to the Treasury each year of his service.
The bottom line is when Mark Sanford was governor he took the time to meet with a mother who was concerned about her sons’ education. And that is why I support Mark Sanford for Congress.
