Remond Cooper and Ed Stokes may not be creatures of politics, but they’re currently helping to provide South Carolina seniors with an added voice in state government. As members of the S.C. Silver Haired Legislature (SCSHL), the two Camden residents work as part of a group of older volunteers who research, debate and discuss issues of interest to the state’s senior citizens. Stokes, a retired pastor, has been a SCSHL member for two years and serves as vice chairman of the Santee-Lynches Region, which includes Kershaw, Clarendon, Lee and Sumter counties.
