We need to preserve open space, protect our water and provide local governments with the tools they need to cope with explosive growth. The Lowcountry environment is our life blood and we need to be good stewards of what we have. It is what makes us unique and attracts visitors from around to world.

ANDY PATRICK EARNS CONSERVATION ENDORSEMENT

(Columbia, SC) -- Conservation Voters of South Carolina endorses Andy Patrick for election to the House of Representatives in the three way race for the District123 seat in Hilton Head and Beaufort County.

"Andy Patrick is running for the House because he cares about the quality of life in the Lowcountry, and especially on Hilton Head Island," said Executive Director Ann Timberlake. "He will take a sensible approach to protecting South Carolina's outdoor traditions."

Patrick understands the value of South Carolina's landmark Conservation Bank that works with local land trusts to voluntarily protect natural and historic places. He will fight for clean air and drinkable water because he knows new jobs are dependent upon these essential resources. And he will advocate for clean energy policies.

According to Patrick, "we need to preserve open space, protect our water and provide local governments with the tools they need to cope with explosive growth. The Lowcountry environment is our life blood and we need to be good stewards of what we have. It is what makes us unique and attracts visitors from around the world."

Candidates earn Conservation Voters' support through an endorsement process that includes an examination of the candidates' records, questionnaire responses and interviews. "Andy Patrick will use his business experience to push for transparency and accountability in state government. But most importantly, he is passionate about protecting the health and safety of his community" added Timberlake.

Since 2002, Conservation Voters has been making traditional conservation values a priority for elected leaders. The independent bipartisan organization holds elected leaders accountable and publishes a biennial Conservation Scorecard.
