Today's Opinions

  • Gregory has always placed principle over politics

    I have had the opportunity to work with the S.C. General Assembly for the better part of 40 years. Most of this time was spent with the Department of Natural Resources in the Division of Marine Resources. During that time, few members of the General Assembly demonstrated a greater commitment to wildlife, coastal marine and forestry conservation than Greg Gregory.
    His success in the hard-fought battle of wills in 2002 to protect the red drum fish from over-fishing is just one example of his legislative accomplishments.

  • McCoy will be faithful representative of his people

    Rob McCoy is the right man for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. He has a common-sense approach for government, believing in the fair tax and term limits for serving in political positions.

  • McCoy will be great asset for S.C.

    Honesty, integrity and humility. Those are the qualities I want in the S.C. Senate District 16 senator.
    Rob McCoy is a relative of mine, but that is not the reason I am voting for him in the Republican primary on Feb. 22. It has, however, given me the opportunity to know his character up close and personal. His wife, Misty McCoy, works close with him and assist with functions, such as the tea parties, campaigning, etc. What a great asset McCoy will be for South Carolina.

  • Gregory ‘can hit the ground running’

    I have known Greg Gregory for so long it is difficult for me to remember not knowing him.
    I have witnessed his growth from a child in our neighborhood, to a student in my Bible study class, a patient in my office, to our Lancaster County senator.
    Greg has developed into an exemplary father, a successful business man and a community leader.  
    His commitment to and understanding of Lancaster County citizens and their needs are the result of intelligence, hard work, common sense and commitment to service.

  • Gregory is a proven leader

    On Feb. 22, there is a special primary to determine the Republican candidate for the S.C. District 16 Senate seat.  Since it is a special primary, it is a time when few people vote.
    This means your vote counts more than most elections. I am asking you to vote for a proven leader – Greg Gregory.
    During the 16-year period between 1992 and 2008, Greg Gregory fought harder than anyone for us, the citizens of his district.

  • Gregory is the best choice for state Senate

    There should always be reasons a voter casts his or her vote for a candidate. In the upcoming special S.C. Senate District 16 election, I will cast mine for Greg Gregory.
    I have several reasons but, in the sense of brevity, will cite only four.

  • Gregory the most qualified for S.C. Senate District 16 seat

    The race for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat is being hard fought. After seeing and listening to the contenders, my thoughts are that several are strong, some are weak and one’s residency is in question. So, who is the strongest of the strong? I am convinced that Greg Gregory is the man for the job.

  • Writer supports Gregory, asks all Republicans to vote

    I was delighted when I found out Greg Gregory was going to run again for the S.C. Senate.
    Greg was a voice of reason when he served before and I am delighted by the prospect that he will be there under the new regime.
    He is confident that he can work with Gov. Nikki Haley’s government to bring about change in Columbia’s operations. He will work tirelessly to bring out a smaller, more centralized government for South Carolina.
    Gregory is also concerned about Education Act 388, which changed the way our schools are funded.
