Tommy Moore for S.C. GovernorBefore leaving South Carolina for New Jersey, I volunteered for the reelection campaign of former governor Jim Hodges; since his defeat, the state has headed downhill -- higher unemployment, less funding for education, poor fiscal management, and so forth. Mark Sanford is consistently rated as one of the worst governors in America, and South Carolina needs leadership now more than ever. With this in mind, I want to encourage S.C. voters to get behind state senator Tommy Moore's (D) gubernatorial campaign. As a state senator, Moore has worked on environmental legislation, and S.C. must have a pro-environmental governor at such a delicate time balancing growth and conservation. Further, as a business owner and state senator with business ties, Moore has experience that could help restore the state's faltering bond rating and boost revenue for both businesses and consumers. Finally, any senator with experience with Homeland Security legislation, as Moore has, is an attractive one in a post-9-11 age. I hope that Moore becomes the next governor of the great state of South Carolina.
