Priorities and Issues
The state of South Carolina is a place of economic growth compared to other states, but so many of our counties have high unemployment rates. Since February of 2020, our life has been heavily impacted by COVID-19, which so far, has forced over tens of thousands to file for unemployment. Many South Carolinians are currently in financial desperation and cannot see a better future. As your State Senator, I will focus on restoring economic growth and cutting unemployment that is sure to linger. We do not know what the next few years will bring. The Republicans have failed us for too long and we must have fresh eyes, fresh solutions, and bold initiatives to go beyond recovery and make South Carolina a winner in quality of life and economic opportunity. We need to invest in the people of South Carolina more and dig for money from the Federal government. We need only look at West Virginia to see how poorly South Carolina has done in obtaining a fair share of federal funding.
It has been a long time since manufacturing hit its peak in Lancaster and York Counties. We can, and must, bring it back. Our Republican district leadership did not bring us a car or airplane manufacturer. We play second fiddle to Charleston, Greenville, Spartanburg, Columbia, and other areas. I will promote our area and will work to attract new investments HERE. I will support an investment tax credit for abandoned mills and factories on a state level. We can do better, and when I am in office, we will do better!
