I have always found the beginning of a new year an exciting time. A time when optimism, promise, and hope rule.
As the beginning of the General Assembly’s legislative session approaches, I find myself reflecting on the power of hope.
I hope South Carolina’s leaders will take this year to focus on and begin the processes needed to solve the major challenges we face as a state.
I hope leaders will be open-minded to new solutions and not repeat the failed positions of the past 20 years, which have left our state unstable and our future uncertain.
I hope leaders will use 2018 as a time to put aside the misinformation and tribalism that have marked our politics, and embrace solutions that address the problems of our state, while building for the future.
