Horne Outlines Campaign Goals

A Western Laurens County man issued a news release yesterday as a candidate to replace Mike Pitts in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Scott Horne said that as he filed for the position, he made a promise to himself, and now makes it to the voters, saying…. “ I intend to represent District 14, not Scott Horne, in Columbia. I promise you that I will truly listen to you and then take your views, your needs to Columbia.”

Scott Horne described himself as a 52-year-old Christian, Veteran, Husband and Father. He said he’s started three business from scratch. Those businesses now employ 43 South Carolinians. Horne noted he is a former school board member and chair of the board. He currently serves as a member of the Laurens County Planning Commission.

Scott Horne also said, “I believe in God, personal responsibility, the sanctity of human life, limited government, the free market and the right to keep and bear arms and I want to be your partner. Should I be blessed to win this election, the District 14 seat will not be mine. No, the seat belongs to the people of the district. I will simply be the one who takes their wishes to the Statehouse.

Promising to listen to the residents of District 14, Scott Horne said,

“You can expect me to exhibit good moral character and maturity. I promise that I will not embarrass you. I don’t want to be a politician. I want to be the voice for all of the people who make up South Carolina House District 14.”
