Re-elect Edge, a powerful lawmaker for us

State House District 104 is fortunate to have as its representative my friend Tracy Edge. Tracy is the most senior House member of the Horry County legislative delegation and with this seniority comes power. Tracy has served on the House Ways and Means Committee, the budget writing committee in the House, since 2002. He has been able to secure millions and millions of dollars for the Grand Strand. Without a doubt, Tracy is Horry County’s most powerful lawmaker.

His opponent, Greg Duckworth, has publicly said that if elected, he will only serve six years in the Statehouse, which means he will never reach a position of power as Edge has done.

Do we really want to trade our most powerful lawmaker, Tracy Edge, for a newcomer who will not commit to putting in the time it takes to get things done?

Please join me in re-electing Tracy Edge on June 12.
