I had the honor of having Dr. Paul Peterson for five courses during my tenure at Coastal Carolina University. His impact on my life during those years contributed greatly to my success at Coastal Carolina and now at law school. Many of our discussions concerned the current state of education, and not only is he a brilliant scholar in political science, but Dr. Peterson has a clear grasp of education and the problems that we face with regard to education both in our public schools as well as in our universities.
It is beyond me that District 5 voters could choose someone who is totally unknown to conservatives in Horry County over someone who is well known and respected in conservative circles, not simply in Horry County but nationally.
