family

I believe strong families hold society together - I do all I can to support traditional family values. 

Family Values

I am 100% pro-life. I represent the unborn tirelessly in the State House. I strongly advocated for and voted for the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act that passed the House in 2017. I co-sponsored the Fetal Personhood bill that would legally grant the unborn the status of human beings. In the face of strong opposition, I successfully introduced an amendment to the budget that effectively defunds Planned Parenthood in S.C.

I believe that marriage is the God-ordained union between one man and one woman, which is how it is defined by S. C. law.

Education

Our children

Superior education for our children is one of the legislature’s most important issues. At stake is no less than the future of our state.
I believe parents know best. I support granting more freedom to local school boards and letting them make the choices best for them.

OUR TEACHERS   

 Our public-school teachers should receive fair wages. They should be freed from unnecessary programs, paperwork, and excessive testing that absorb valuable teaching time. 

Our Safety

Our schools must be safe.  Ever since our Oakland tragedy, I have advocated for an armed school resource officer in every school.  I co-signed a bill to help school districts make this a reality and voted to allocate substantial money toward hiring SROs. I also voted for legislation allowing retired law enforcement to serve as SROs without losing their retirement benefits.

the family caucus

Based on these convictions, I helped organize the Family Caucus of the S.C. House of Representatives in 2017. This caucus of like-minded legislators has defended Biblical ideals like family, life, marriage, gender, and religious freedom. We network with faith-based organizations like Palmetto Family, the S.C. Baptist Association, S.C. Citizens for Life, and the S.C. Catholic Diocese and advocate together for common causes.

Our Faithful Community

We are blessed with benevolent organizations in Greenwood that strengthen our community. I have publicly recognized the Burton Center, Connie Maxwell Children’s Home, Faith Home, Volunteers in Medical Missions, Greater Greenwood United Ministry, Beckman Mental Health, Crossroads Pregnancy Center, and others for their immeasurable positive impact on the Lakelands community. 
 

Threats To The Family

Substance abuse destroys families. I have supported efforts to combat the Opioid Crisis and actively opposed a vocal alcohol lobby that wants to abolish our current laws and open an unlimited number of retail liquor stores in our communities. 

Human trafficking has been uncovered in our state. I support our Attorney General in the fight to eradicate this abhorrent human rights violation.  I also voted to strengthen our obscenity laws.
