To anyone who thinks politics don’t matter, and one politician is the same as another, think about this. Your life is impacted by the decisions your elected officials make.

Imagine being saddled with mountains of debt for the rest of your life, all because you wanted the education you need to move up in the world. Imagine never owning a business simply because you can’t afford to buy health insurance. Imagine your home is destroyed by a catastrophic weather event caused by climate change.

Your elected representatives at every level exercise control over your life – whether you voted for them or not. We need to show them who’s boss. Help James Island/Folly Beach Democrats put the “representative” back into representative government.
