2017 Public Servant Spotlight: State Sen. William Timmons

Before the Primaries in 2016 for state and local offices, we ran a series of interviews of several of the candidates running.  We called it the 2016 Candidate Spotlight Series.  Several of those candidates we interviewed won election and we decided to check back in with those candidates as well as with some of our other elected officials in a series we’re calling the 2017 Public Servant Spotlight Series.

We’re asking the newly elected officials how the reality of the office they won compares to their expectations, what legislation or actions they are proud of accomplishing in their first few months in office, what they plan to attempt to attempt to accomplish going forward.

Our first Spotlight focuses on the freshman state senator for District 6, Sen. William Timmons.
The Senator talks about the challenges of the state senate, how even in defeat, he sees progress and some of the legislation he plan to introduce.  We also spent some time on the biggest piece of legislation coming out of this session; the Roads Bill.

If you would like to contact Sen. Timmons, here is his contact info:

Email: william@votetimmons.com
Legislature email: williamtimmons@scsenate.gov
Phone: 864-616-8821

Feel free to let the Senator know of your concerns and ideas.

April 27, 2017 Podcast: Dropping bombs and taxes.

Today’s show was all about dropping bombs and taxes.

We spent the first half of the show discussing our current Administration’s “tough guy” approach to foreign policy, from cruise missiles in Syria to the “Mother of All Bombs” in Afghanistan and sending an armada to one particular trouble spot.  All of these actions seem designed to send a message to a world leader most in the world describe as a lunatic, Kim Jung Un of North Korea.

We, then spent some time looking at President Trump’s tax proposals that are touted to be the biggest tax cut ever.

We closed out the show discussing the Legislature’s attempt at a roads bill that promises to be a reform bill and an effective fix for our roads, but really is neither.

Today’s show began with the announcement of friend of the show and mental health advocate, Paton Blough of rehinge.com.

We then checked out freshman state senator, William Timmon’s well reasoned and reasonable plan for fixing our roads here in SC.  In this Greenville Journal article, Sen. Timmon lays out a 3 step plan that just might work.  Check out his plan here and encourage your senators to support it.

Finally, we took some time to examine President Trump’s Budget that he sent to Congress last week.

March 9, 2016 Podcast: Town Halls and Traveling

We started today’s show with a breakdown of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s town hall.

We appreciate Sen. Graham providing us an opportunity to express our views to him, even if many of those view disagree with him.

On the second half of the show, we focused on legislation the SC House passed that affect our traveling:
The gas tax bill

And legislation authorizing SC to comply with The Real ID Act passed and signed into U.S. law in 2005.
