Sam Skardon can bring fresh perspective to the State Senate because he and his wife Leslie are the faces of this rapidly changing suburban district. Traffic, student debt, skyrocketing housing costs, and the need for great public schools are issues Sam and his family experience everyday. His balance of experience in the public and private sectors make him the right guy to get things done. Sam has the vision, energy, and values that South Carolina needs in 2020.
