Re Aug. 11 letter by Richard Boyle, “Say no to Gloria Tinubu”
Why we should say “yes” to Gloria Bromell Tinubu
Because we want a woman who was born in South Carolina (attended public schools and received a PhD in applied economics from Clemson) to fight for all children to have the same opportunities that she was given. We are currently 46th in the nation.
Because we want a woman who understands the needs of teachers (currently a professor at CCU) and who is committed to helping them achieve success
Because we want a woman who will work to find solutions to decrease the rate of poverty in children (26 percent in Horry County and 34 percent in Georgetown County)
Because we want a woman who will help to restore funding to shelters for victims of domestic abuse
Because we want a woman who is committed to restoring jobs and to help to create new ones
Because we want a woman who will fight for equal pay for equal work
Because we want affordable health care for ourselves and for our family
Because we want a woman who will use her experience, commitment and passion to restore the American Dream to South Carolina
