With one week to go before the Nov. 2 election, S.C. House District 79 Democratic candidate Mia Butler and S.C. Superintendent of Education candidates Frank Holleman (D) and Timothy Moultrie (L) took the stage on Monday night for a political forum. Absent from the forum were House District 79 Republican candidate Sheri Few, and S.C. Superintendent of Education candidates Mick Zais (R), Doretha Bull (G) and Tony Fayyazi (IP). In a written statement read aloud at the forum, Fayyazi said he is “not in favor of the present system … and will do whatever is in my power to change it … including considering vouchers or tax credits that would improve the future of all of our children.”
