I'm putting government to work for you
“I ran for the state senate because I believed the status quo wasn’t working for everyday people. Since taking office, I have worked hard to get government working for you and eliminate fraud, waste, and abuse that hurts our schools and roads. I have pushed our Governor and my fellow legislators to do more to protect South Carolinians from COVID-19, expanding testing and helping local businesses survive. After years of long lines and poorly run elections, I was able to reform the Richland County Election Commission and install new leadership focused on protecting your vote in November. I also uncovered hundreds of thousands being wasted every year at the Columbia Airport Commission, driving up ticket prices to pay for luxury boxes at basketball games and expensive trips to useless conferences. Government is there to serve the people. I’m working hard every day to ensure it does just that"
