GAFFNEY — Senator Harvey Peeler today announced his reelection bid for SC Senate District 14, which comprises Cherokee County and parts of Spartanburg, Union and York counties.
The following is his statement:
If reelected, my priority will continue to be on improving the quality of life for every family in District 14. I will build on past successes to bring jobs to our area, improve public education, and strengthen our infrastructure — roads and bridges, as well as water and sewer services.
I led the Senate this year in creating a major highway and road improvement initiative without raising taxes, and adopting meaningful ethics reform.
My Read to Succeed initiative, signed by Gov. Haley in 2014, focuses on making certain that third graders are able to read at their grade level before being promoted — a critical skill they must have to succeed in school and beyond.
I will be your strong and effective voice in state government if you continue to give me the privilege of serving as your Senator.
Peeler is seeking his 10th term in the SC Senate.
