a busy week and Gresham Barrett
by Heidi,posted Aug 23 2011 4:26PM
My friend, Natalie, is married to Rep. Gresham Barrett. I have seen first hand the sacrifices the entire family has made over the past few years to be faithful public servants.
I sometimes wonder why anyone would do it! The long distance travel, long hours and time away from home are true tests of spirit.
Gresham Barrett is dedicated to public service. He is a family man, former Army Captain, and small business owner. As a US Representative, he spent lots of time in Washington,DC and knows the games that they play.
Those attributes make him qualified to hold office and lead our government. His integrity, honesty and strength of character make him worthy to hold office.
This candidate for Governor has a Plan for our economy! For education, for job growth!
His opponent in the runoff on Tuesday has not outlined a plan, has not indicated she has any idea of what steps need to be taken to lift SC out of its sad state of high unemployment and outrageous spending.
I am going to go with the man who will give SC its best opportunity and that is Gresham Barrett.
Talk to your friends,spread the word. Vote Gresham Barrett for Governor!
Leading up to Tuesdays run-off are a few cool things going on.
