I was reading the recent opinion of a writer from Pawleys Island. He seems to think that it is not important to us who gets elected and we should only be interested in our own district. Most bills that are passed are voted on by all the Senate and House members.
If you are pro-life, you want pro-life candidates to be elected. If you believe in small government, want ethics reform that requires lawmakers to disclose their sources of income, if you want fair and independent investigations of ethics claims against legislators, then you do not vote for candidates who continually vote against these measures.
It was important enough for Gov. Haley to make a trip to Georgetown County to endorse Reese Boyd III. I think she did this because she has been fighting for ethics reform since she took office and would like to have more support while she is still in office.
She told us how disappointed she was with certain candidates. She told us about nepotism. She told us about legislators voting themselves a big pay raise and for tax increases. You can check this out through the S.C. Legislature website.
Never miss a local story.
She said we need a conservative who does not want to personally benefit themselves. She said it is time to send people to Columbia that work for us. Every Senate and House seat impacts me and my family. So yes, I want to see good Christian people elected that are true servants of the people.
I met Reese working with the Republican party where he has served in many rolls. You can also find him at the South Carolina Palmetto Council where he currently serves as board chairman.
He serves as a board member for the South Carolina Statewide Public Charter Schools District. He will be there for “we the people.”
I pray that you will support him and give South Carolina another true conservative legislator.
