Letter: Keep Joe Wilson & the military

I have known Congressman Joe Wilson for more than twenty years. Joe is a proven leader for the Second Congressional District.

Letter: Harrison is Not Moderate

The DNC is trying to package Jamie Harrison as a nice guy/moderate. While he seems like a nice guy, South Carolinians deserve to know the whole truth. Jaime Harrison is not a moderate.

Letter: Jackson Always Votes BW!

As we ponder who we want to give our vote to in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, I think it matters a great deal to know something of the person and character of those on the ballot. I think myself fortunate to have served the Town of Blythewood on the planning commission and as a […]
