If you are a registered voter in South Carolina, now is the time (if you don't already know) to find out who your state representative is.
The representative who you and your neighbors send to Columbia to carry out your wishes in legislative matters are elected every two years.
There are 124 members of the S.C. House of Representatives. Each one represents 1/124th of the population of South Carolina.
Your representative should be responsive to you, and should want to hear from you about matters of importance in your district.
Never miss a local story.
Now is the time to contact your representative by mail, email, or telephone.
There has been an amendment placed on a bill that came over from the Senate that would, if passed in the legislative process, denigrate the pristine waters and environmentally irreplaceable wildlife environment of Cap'n Sam's Spit on Kiawah Island.
It would eliminate the delicate nesting site of the Diamondback Terrapin.
It would pave over paradise, with concrete, 2,500 feet of the back beach of the Spit where dolphins strand feed -- one of the few places on Earth where dolphins exhibit this rare behavior.
Make the call, write the letter, and send the email to your state representative. They love hearing from you because you sent them to Columbia.
