It has been a very exciting and, at the same time, challenging experience this Legislative Session. There have been many important bills passing through the House and Senate and signed by the Governor. Among them are:
- H. 3142 – Portion of auto sales taxes to go toward Road and Bridge maintenance - $85 million
- S. 578 – Economic Development Bonds for Boeing Expansion – allowing a $1.1 Billion expansion – 4,000 potential jobs added
- H. 3170 – Identity Fraud Protection
- H. 3560 – Background Checks for Mental Health Issues to purchase handguns
- H. 3112 & H.3027 – Tax breaks for active military personnel
Thank you for allowing me to serve you in the State House.
The final weekend before Election Day! I encourage every one of my supporters to come to the polls Tuesday! Thank you for your prayers, support, encouragement and votes! I look forward to an exciting election day. This is the most important election we’ve ever had. Our future depends on good people exercising their right to vote!
We are now in the stretch run of the campaign! Things are getting exciting! We have had many great experiences meeting the great people in our district. I have enjoyed this process. We will keep pressing forward until Election Day! Let everyone know about our message of better jobs, better schools and making South Carolina a more open and transparent government.
Last night we went to Crescent High School’s Homecoming game against Blacksburg. We handed out football schedules and met a lot of nice people there. Look forward to more today as we head to Hite Stadium for the Rotary Bowl.
Well, it’s football season again, and to help you keep up with your favorite team, I’ve compiled all the high school football schedules in SC House District 11 – Abbeville, Calhoun Falls, Crescent and Dixie – as well as Clemson and Carolina. You can keep it in your car, at work, or on your refrigerator, or anywhere that’ll help you keep up with the upcoming games. As much as I love football, this is an exciting time of year, and I wish the best of luck to all of our local teams! Schedules are available at many convenience stores and other merchants throughout the district. If you are unable to find one contact me or come by my office at 105 Cherry Street in Abbeville. Phone: (864)366-2024.
I am running to serve the people of S.C. House District 11 and to be a voice for us in Columbia. In my 26 years as a resident of Abbeville and a small-business owner as a chiropractor, I have met some of the finest, hardest-working and most dedicated people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. It is my goal to give back to the people of this district – Abbeville and Anderson counties - by serving in the State House. (See Updated District Map.)
