Voters in S.C. House District 44 have three choices in November to replace their outgoing state representative, but there’s one candidate who stands above the rest – Joseph Coy.
As a human resources professional who helped run a construction company and as someone who spent six years on a regional workforce investment board, I can relate to Coy’s concerns about running a business and creating jobs. He is a hands-on business owner who understands the needs for real tax reform, reining in job-killing regulations and tort reform, because he deals with these problems every day. He knows we need action, not words, and has good ideas about how to bring more jobs to Lancaster County and help our families keep more of their hard-earned dollars.
Coy also served his country as a Marine. You don’t have to wonder if he’ll work hard and you can rest assured that words like “duty” and “honor” are at the core of his being.
Like any good business owner, Coy doesn’t speak in sound bites or promise what he can’t deliver just because it sounds good. I would ask his neighbors in District 44 to talk with him before they vote and they’ll see he has the ideas and the work ethic needed to deliver real solutions to the problems facing the rural communities of District 44.
The other two candidates seeking this House seat are an attorney and a recent college graduate. I don’t question their sincerity, but in a time when jobs are the No. 1 issue, voters should be looking at candidates who are best able to understand what it takes to get South Carolina’s economy moving again.
Coy is the common-sense candidate with the ideas, work ethic and experience to best represent the people of District 44 and work for more jobs and stronger communities for Lancaster County and South Carolina.
