I am writing today to introduce myself as the Democratic nominee for S.C. State House District 112, which serves Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms.
This is an open seat this year, and we have a real opportunity to flip it. Joe Cunningham carried our district in 2018, and we’ve added 2,000 new voters since then. In fact, 20 percent of our district did not live here five years ago. Our changing demographics along with a polarizing Republican nominee who wasn’t re-elected to Mount Pleasant Town Council last year, make this seat winnable for the first time in modern history.
I entered this race in the midst of the pandemic because we need a representative in Columbia who will fight for our coast, our schools and our health. I will ensure our children, workers and small businesses are not left behind during this public health emergency.
For the past 14 years, I have worked hard in my personal life to serve our state, including five years improving the justice system in South Carolina’s ‘Corridor of Shame,’ four years on the board of the S.C. Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and two years on the Charleston County Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.
I am committed to moving the state forward with respect to justice reform, equality and how we treat our most vulnerable citizens.
For my day job, I work as marketing director for the local law firm Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman. I hold a Master’s degree in business administration from the University of South Carolina.
My wife Pamela and I have two children: Wolfe (8) and Selah (7), who attend Whitesides Elementary School in Mount Pleasant.
I am running to be responsive to all of the district’s constituents, and to put serving our people and places above the hyper-partisanship that has held us back for too long. I won’t back down from doing what’s right for the Lowcountry and our state.
I would love to have you join us in flipping this seat and bringing responsible leadership to Columbia. Sign up to volunteer here.
In service to you, our community and our state,
Daniel Brownstein for SC-112
1391 Downsberry Dr
Mount Pleasant, SC 29466-6814
