Candidate Name: Rhodes Bailey
What office are you running for?
South Carolina House of Representatives District 75
With which party are you running for office?
November 3, 2020
Why are you running for office?
Because I’m tired of the disfunction and self-dealing in our state government.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Our educational system is failing our students and teachers – the quality of our local schools is declining rapidly. I will fight for a legislative agenda that prioritizes students and teachers over tax giveaways for the owner of the Carolina Panthers (and other special interests).
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We need to focus our attention on issues that voters all agree on like schools, infrastructure, and corruption.
Who is your hero?
My mother, who became a lawyer in the 1970s when there were very few female lawyers in South Carolina.
What are your hobbies?
Play guitar in a local band
What is the most recent book you read?
I reread “Animal Farm” for the first time in 25 years.
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
Gipper, a pit/lab mix rescue dog.
