Coffee With Your Congressman

After a very busy start to the year in Washington D.C., I wanted to hear from all of my constituents. So, we hit the road and hosted Coffee with your Congressman events in every county across our district! This week, we traveled to Cheraw, Bennettsville, Dillon, Marion, and Murrells Inlet. We discussed current events, upcoming legislation and important issues impacting our country and local community. I'm so appreciative of the opportunity to share updates on my work in Washington D.C. and hear how I can best serve you and your families. If you were unable to attend, or if I can be of help in any way, please contact one of my offices!  

 

 
 

One Lunch at a Time

 
  A few weeks ago I read a newspaper article about Mallorie Brown, an Aynor High sophomore launching the Aynor chapter of We Dine Together, a national initiative that ensures no student eats their lunch alone. This week I had the opportunity to eat lunch with Mallorie and other Aynor High School students participating in the We Dine Together program. What a great reminder that a small act of kindness, such as inviting someone to your lunch table, can make a big difference. Thank you to Mallorie and other student leaders who are making the world a better place - one lunch break at a time!

  Over the past decade, America has lost its nickname as the land of opportunity. My goal is to restore this nickname and bring opportunity to South Carolina! We've already seen the tremendous impact tax reform has had on our economy, and I joined Trey Paul to discuss how we can keep this momentum going.

$3 Billion (and counting!)

 
  Thanks to tax reform, 4 million American workers have received more than $3 billion in bonuses. Employers are boosting their base wage and expanding employee benefts. Major companies, such as Apple, are repatriating their profits and small business confidence is at a record high. To top it off, 9 out of 10 Americans have more money in their paychecks this month. 

It’s no surprise that the most recent polls show the majority of Americans support the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. I am so proud of what this legislation has accomplished in such a short period of time!
