Johnny’s Message


Dear Friends,

As a former educator, businessman and volunteer I’ve developed a deep appreciation for our community here in District 8 and its unique needs.  I’m ready to work hard for you on council, making every effort to be accessible and always listening first to your concerns.  I believe public input, transparency and establishing a climate of cooperation are the key pillars of success for Horry County, and I’ll work to ensure these practices remain intact.  As an engineer I understand that it takes teamwork to develop solutions that work.  

Truthfully, I don’t have all the answers, but if elected you have my pledge that I’ll work with council and the public to effectively address issues impacting Horry County at large and District 8.  Good ideas are often generated from the public, and that’s why accessibility and sound communication with the people of District 8 are a top priority for me.

With your help, we’ll work to keep property taxes low, ensure our first responders are fully funded, protect small businesses from excessive ordinances and properly plan for the development of our future infrastructure. With that as my motivation I humbly ask for your prayers and support.
