“Looking back on my time within the South Carolina State House, my greatest achievement is probably staying true to who I first was when I ran for public office in 2010. When I examine my heart, I know with confidence that the reasons why I entered public service remain true today.
Far too often elected leaders lose focus of why they serve. It becomes about what they can gain from the service and not about what they can offer to the public. Those material things are not the reasons why I serve. It’s about making a difference so that our children have an incredible opportunity to grow up with every opportunity before them. My service is about moving our state forward, while holding true to our founding principles as a country”.
