Last week I completed another four-day tour through the beautiful Seventh District. In all, I visited with over 400 South Carolinians. On my tour, I held or participated in:
  • Seven live, in-person town hall meetings
  • The Seventh District Interfaith Prayer Breakfast
  • Marion County’s Martin Luther King Jr. Walk of Unity and Program
  • A stormwater drainage tour in Georgetown County
  • A healthcare center tour in Florence
  • A tour of PALM Charter School in Conway
  • A meeting with South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office
  • Meetings with constituents

During each visit on the tour, I encouraged our friends and neighbors to set down their phones, turn off CNN and Fox News, and look  at all of the great things  happening all around us. Check out some of the highlights below!

Praying for Our Community

On Wednesday, we held the Seventh District Interfaith Prayer Breakfast with my friend Lieutenant Clebe McClary and six leaders from churches and synagogues throughout the District. Over 200 friends and neighbors came together to pray as a community for guidance and support. Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Hearing from You

One of the best parts of my job is visiting with and hearing from all of you. I was able to meet many new faces and see some familiar ones during my seven Coffee with Your Congressman events in the Pee Dee and the Grand Strand last week. We discussed current events and legislation as well as how I'm working for you in Congress. Thank you to those who took time out of their busy schedules to come to one of these events, it is an honor to represent you!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Marion County

On Monday, I had a great time participating in Marion County’s Walk of Unity and Program in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His commitment to unifying our nation and uplifting all Americans made this a better nation and inspired the world. We celebrated his teachings  with performances and stories of hope.

Building Our Workforce

I toured PALM Charter High School, the only motorsport high school in the country. Their students take classes in collision technology, welding, and graphics and graduate with a unique skill set they can use to secure good paying jobs immediately after graduation. The students I met last Tuesday have a bright future ahead of them!

DaVita Health Center Tour

On Wednesday, I visited the DaVita Sandy Hill dialysis center and spoke with caregivers and patients. We had an informative discussion surrounding patient care and the challenges of treating those with kidney failure. I am so grateful for their dedication to caring for our community!

I look forward to taking all of your thoughts, concerns, and ideas to Washington where I will make them my priority in doing my job as your representative.
