FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 20, 2012
“I’m excited to be a candidate for the State House District 120. This new district means that Beaufort and Jasper Counties will have an additional voice in Columbia. That voice should be someone who understands first-hand the needs of the entire district and someone who has demonstrated a commitment to working effectively across county lines. I want to be that voice.” -Jerry Stewart, Candidate
Beaufort and Jasper Counties have significant areas of common interest. As Chair of the Beaufort County’s Governmental Committee, Jerry Stewart understands the issues and appreciates the excellent relationship that exists between these two counties in such areas as public safety (like the Fire Departments and EMS), legislative affairs, and economic growth. Jerry has worked hard to build bridges in these areas.
Economic development is critical to both counties, and Jerry Stewart has long been committed to a regional, cross-county approach. He played a key role in the Lowcountry Economic Alliance and serves on the Lowcountry Economic NetworkBoard. These organizations helped bring companies like BeGreen and Daniels Defenseto the area and they continue to support the Riverport project and the Jasper Ocean Terminal.
Jerry Stewart said, “This campaign is about who can best represent all residents of District 120, and who will work most effectively with other members of our legislative delegation to promote tax reform and governmental reform in Columbia. We need to lower taxes …, for residents and businesses alike. That means streamlining state government and overhauling the state tax code. We need to let counties keep more of their tax dollars and, with a strong commitment to Home Rule, we need to let the counties determine how to use those tax dollars.”
“That’s a tall order, and I welcome the challenge. Those who know me understand that no one will work harder to understand the issues and promote the needed change, “ Stewart added.
