Conway Chamber Breakfast 

I had the opportunity to join the Conway Chamber of Commerce Power Breakfast to discuss transformative projects underway in the district as well as the positive impact of tax reform on our local economy. Pro-growth tax reform and regulatory reform are helping small businesses in our area grow, invest, and hire new employees. The Dillon Inland Port is attracting new industries to this area, funding for beachfront renourishment is ensuring the prosperity of our beaches, and disaster relief aid is allowing residents to rebuild their homes after Hurricane Matthew. These projects and policies are having a real impact on people's lives and are lifting up the entire Seventh District!

Make sure you and your family are prepared for hurricane season by following the helpful tips provided by the SCEMD.

Congressional Art Competition

  Thank you to every one who submitted pieces to the Seventh District Congressional Art Competition. We received some amazing entries from young artists across our district, and selected three winning pieces. One piece will be displayed in our Grand Strand office, one piece will be displayed in our Pee Dee office, and one piece will be displayed in the Capitol. Katelyn's beautiful work was selected to hang in our Grand Strand office. I am looking forward to meeting the other two winners!   


Meet our Interns 

  Our D.C. office has three interns working hard on behalf of the Seventh District for the summer! We asked them why they are excited to join our team.

Boni Belle Brooks is a rising sophomore at the University of South Carolina. She said, "I am so excited about this internship because of all of the doors it will open for me and my future. This is an amazing opportunity to receive hands-on experience in the heart of D.C."

Riley Hinde is a rising junior at the University of South Carolina double majoring in Criminology and Political Science. She said, "I’m excited to be interning for Congressman Tom Rice because I am able to experience Washington D.C. and get a taste of working for a political office!"

Grant Singleton is a rising junior at the University of South Carolina majoring in Public Relations. He said, "I am excited to intern in Congressman Tom Rice’s office because it is an incredible opportunity to experience life on the Hill. I am thrilled at the chance to make new connections and network with everyone I meet. I am learning new things everyday about the Legislative Branch, how to succeed in the office, and I'm building a better all-around work ethic. This is a chance of a lifetime that anyone would be lucky to take."
