I’ve been privileged to hold the S.C. Senate District 16 seat for 16 years. Now that my retirement is days away my thoughts turn to the question of who will fill the seat for the next term.
Both candidates seeking this office are qualified. I’ve watched fondly as Mandy Powers Norrell, my former Sunday school pupil, grow from a young girl into a successful professional.
She has run an impressive race for this office and could certainly do the job.
Rep. Mick Mulvaney, however, brings a rare package of talent to the legislature.
