It is with great pleasure that I announce my candidacy for the SC House District 87 seat. If given this opportunity to serve the citizens of Lexington County, I look forward to engaging the House of Representatives in a way that will provide us with all the necessary resources for our wonderful, growing community.

With my bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and knowledge of infrastructure development, I plan to work diligently to seek funding sources for the roadways throughout our county that are in desperate need of repair and reconfiguration. This was a primary focus during my last four years as a councilman in the Town of Lexington and we were successful in finding some solutions as a result. However, many more must be found to accommodate the growth projections moving forward and this will require help from the state. I also plan to address the larger, macro problems in our state related to infrastructure issues and inefficiencies in our large state agencies. We live in a wonderful county within a wonderful state and it will take all of us working together to ensure that we maintain our current quality of life and pass it on to our children.

My pledge to the citizens of district 87 is that, if elected, I will serve in the state house with passion and unwavering commitment. This same passion led me to serve with the Southern Baptist mission board in Russia for 3 years as an international missionary and aid worker. It then led me to travel the world leading relief efforts as a pastor with Lexington Baptist Church, followed by 8 years of pastoral leadership in establishing Radius Church within our community. Now, as I serve our community through executive leadership at SouthernMED Pediatrics, I plan to leverage all of these past experiences in service to you, the citizens of district 87.

With Representative Atwater’s departure, it is imperative that we fill this open seat with positive, competent leadership in order to preserve the outstanding quality of life we now enjoy and desire to pass down to our children. That will be my singular goal as your representative.
