The problem of greatest concern to me is economic growth.  We must be able to attract stable large businesses to our State to provide quality jobs to base growth upon. The workforce of any region must have a livable wage in order to provide for families and maintain a good quality of life.  I believe that most people want to accomplish goals and provide for themselves. However, our State has many areas that are literally dying for lack of a stable economic workforce to support the local communities. The economic decline of rural South Carolina is of utmost concern as most young professional people want to flock to urban areas.  There is great potential in redeveloping the rural parts of South Carolina to support the local economies.  I am dedicated and driven to help accomplish improvements in the economy and justice systems for our State.
