Corona Virus and the Economy
Every person in our State, Nation, and even across the globe has been affected by the novel Coronavirus. For my part, as a candidate for the S.C. Senate, I’d like to look down the road and focus my efforts on developing a plan to rebuild and grow our economy. Just a few short months ago, our economy was setting records—we were experiencing all-time highs—and I fully intend to work to bring it back to that capacity. To do this, we need to work with our partners at the federal, state and local levels to help those who have lost jobs rejoin the workforce. This involves encouraging and empowering small businesses to reinvest in our economy by cutting taxes and eliminating regulations that have proven onerous and useless. This time is far too critical to allow government regulations to stifle our recovery. Failure to act appropriately could result in years, not months, to recover from this unprecedented incident.
