Writer "excited" to support Baldwin for House

web posted June 7, 2010
Dear Editor,
I am excited to support Dea Baldwin in her grass roots campaign for the South Carolina House of Representative’s position Don Smith is vacating.  As a wife, mother and professional, Dea understands the challenges that families, business, and our communities are facing today in South Carolina.  She is a fiscal conservative who strongly supports traditional family values and is concerned about the impact of current legislation on future generations. 

I have known Dea for over 12 years through her involvement in our schools and Boy Scouts. As a retired military officer, I quickly recognized her valuable skills as a communicator, organizer, and problem solver, and her ability to motivate others to work together for effective change. 

Dea couples these skills with the use of research and data to get things done.  She has worked with local school leaders to successfully address inequities in funding and resources for Aiken’s Area 2. In her role as chair of a 52 member advisory board at the S.C. Department of Education, Dea works with professionals from around the state, the Superintendent of Education, the S.C. School Board, and state legislators.  As spokesman for the advisory council, she accompanies state education leaders to participate in regulatory meetings in Washington, D.C.

As a legislator, Dea would use her skills to take a stand for accountability and transparency in state government.  She would work toward a comprehensive overhaul of our tax system to make it more fair and equitable and to ensure that our tax dollars are being spent on essential services, not special interest projects. 

Please join me in voting for Dea Baldwin in the Republican primary on June 8 for House District 83.  In sending Dea to Columbia we will be represented by someone who is not just another politician, but who genuinely wants to make a difference.
