To the Citizens of Blue Ridge and Greer,
Please accept my sincerest thanks for the opportunity to represent all of you in the South Carolina House. Since my election in 2008, I have cast many votes on your behalf often in difficult economic circumstances. Some votes have been controversial and for those of my neighbors who disagreed with me on various issues, I appreciate your patience and civility. Please know that I diligently weigh each vote and attempt to reflect the will of the community in a thoughtful and prudent manner.
This year I am very humbled to run unopposed. I am thankful for the confidence that you have placed in me. As I look back to 2008, I promised myself then that I would not make a career out of politics and that remains my promise. Frankly, I am probably more surprised than anyone that a fifth term in office awaits me, God willing. I suspect that this term will be the most challenging so far. Please know that no matter the challenge, I will continue to represent our community as I have done so in the past – with a conservatism born in Blue Ridge and an optimism made in Greer.
In Your Service,
