The secret is out and Beaufort County is growing!  I will embrace the growth while making sure that we maintain the charm and elegance of Beaufort County.  Part of the charm of Beaufort are the small businesses and the entrepreneurs. 


I want to make sure that our local government supports small business and helps them to grow rather than hinder them by creating unnecessary hurdles.  I want to attract industry and skilled labor to the area that will bring in higher paying jobs. 


I also want to grow our education system here in the Lowcountry, especially our higher education institutions.  My goal is to have a strong Beaufort County that is not solely reliant on tourism to thrive.
