As your representative, I will look for ways to make South Carolina a more competitive force in the marketplace. We have great assets within our state such as being a right-to- work state, which limits unions, and hard working, loyal citizens to offer the business sector. Businesses must operate with a profit and the only way to do this is by producing more or cutting cost. We, as legislators must find new ways to help them cut their costs, such as looking into lowering our cooperate income tax, reducing property tax, and training the most skilled workforce. Small business is the foundation of our state and should remain on the minds of our leaders.
