912 Mt. Pleasant Meeting


John Steinberger, the petition candidate running against incumbent Speaker Bobby Harrell, will be the guest speaker Thursday, September 13, 2012.  John, also known as Fair Tax John, has an uphill battle since he is going up against a well-funded 20-year incumbent who also has the support of the Palmetto Leadership Council Political Action Committee, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists who seek favors from our state government.

John wants to help South Carolina transition its economic development strategy from one which focuses on providing incentives to targeted corporations at an estimated cost of $1 Billion per year to one which attracts and grows businesses through a competitive tax structure.  He also wants to limit the annual growth in state government spending to the rate of inflation.

    In addition to John Steinberger, four of the five West Ashley school board candidates will be attending the Sept. 13th meeting. The 9 members of the Charleston County School Board have tremendous power deciding where our tax dollars go. You need to talk with them and ask the, them questions to make an informed decision on Nov. 6th. Everyone in Charleston County can vote for all school board seats.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
