Creating Jobs and Improving Infrastructure

I’ve spent my career in business, and I know firsthand why jobs leave places like South Carolina – and I know how to bring them back.

Creating tax incentives for companies to open plants overseas instead of South Carolina is not the answer.  Neither is provoking a trade war.

Tariffs that intend to take aim at foreign competition also take direct aim at companies right here in South Carolina.  The newly announced tariffs on aluminum and steel could have a dire impact on the manufacturing industry that so much of South Carolina – and the 5th district – depends upon.

The manufacturing industry also cannot survive without a sound infrastructure to support it. We must enable businesses to grow locally in order to attract larger businesses to move here from elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad. This means investing in and improving our roads, bridges and ports throughout the entire state.
