Speaker tells local GOP women to avoid voting straight tickets

from Lancaster County Republican Women
Katrina Shealy, Senate candidate for District 23 in Lexington County, is running a heated race against Sen. Jake Knotts on the platform of reform that supports the viability of small businesses.
Shealy shared her platform at a recent Lancaster County Republican Women lunch and encouraged them to join the effort.
The primary tool to affect change is to avoid voting straight ticket, she said. She encouraged diligent research of candidates’ commitments to affect change, and to vote for those who have the courage to stand up to the good-old-boy system in the Senate.
As an example, she cited the S.C. House’s diligent work on meaningful education and government reform that she said was sabotaged by Senate antics.
She said the primary issues that affect small business owners are:
u Current ethics laws that permit unfair and crippling procedural process.
u Tax advantages that are afforded only to large corporations and unfairly impact small business.
u Licensing and fee structures that make it difficult for women minorities to take advantage of FDA loans.
She encouraged women to be involved in voter education on all levels with the focus on supporting candidates who are committed to address issues affecting small businesses.
