Online extra letter | Support Mike Ryhal for District 56 House seat

In the matter facing the voters of South Carolina House District 56, the voters have a great opportunity to select a candidate who will represent the unique issues facing Carolina Forest and north central Horry County. The two candidates have both worked extremely hard to garner the trust and confidence of the public. One however stands out as the candidate that has the extensive business background so badly in our General Assembly to help resolve our woeful economic situation in South Carolina. Mr Ryhal has spent a lifetime in the field of negotiating contracts, building teams and expanding a corporate enterprise. This is exactly the type of experience we need in Columbia to help put our citizens back to work and attract business to our state.

Those who have spent any time speaking with Mr. Ryhal quickly understand he is a man of principle, faith and conviction. He has raised a family, built a successful business and created jobs. His opponent is working to gain the experience Mr. Ryhal already brings to the table. I am convinced the voters of SC House District 56 will value that experience and recognize the immediate impact Mr. Ryhal will make in the effort to restore confidence in our elected officials, create a more hospitable business environment and demonstrate that ethics in government can be achieved.
