New leaders can take SC to brighter future

info@islandpacket.comJune 9, 2013 

I would like to add my thoughts to the May 29 letter "SC is far behind others due to people we elect."

I hope Elizabeth Colbert Busch is U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford's opponent in the 2014 election. I expect Sanford's performance between now and then to be as lackluster as his previous congressional terms. Colbert Busch is a forward-thinking woman, who would be a credit to South Carolina.

Some people seem to be negative and fearful and loathe to let go of bygone days they recall as "the good old days." Democrats focus on our great country, creative ideas and strong efforts to move into the 21st century.

Come on, folks, support candidates who want the best quality of life for South Carolinians, not candidates who promise to vote against government programs that are developed to improve our quality of life.
