Op-Ed: The journey to reconciliation
Placeholder Image
For almost 25 years, we have worked together on a variety of issues to promote unity over division, build a common agenda for the advancement of public education, and create economic opportunities for all South Carolinians. We both opposed the establishment of the state lottery in South Carolina because we agreed that it promoted luck over hard work and preyed upon the poor. We feared that it would lead to lessening of state support for public education even though it attempted to benefit some through scholarships.
