State Representative, 26th District, South Carolina
Election Date: April 23, 2012
About the Candidate:
Jeremy C. Walters is a carpenter, a conservative family man, and a citizen just like you. His interest in effecting change started when he realized the dire need for reform in the family court system so that all fit parents have an equal opportunity to get shared custody of their children. As Vice President for SC Coalition 4 Parents and Children, he got very familiar with the process of filing bills, petitioning legislators, and has become a familiar face in Columbia. He has pushed for H4614 a shared custody bill, and as of June 6th, it will become law and go on to the Governor’s desk.

He has ardently been researching Constitutional rights, law, and most recently has been reading “Unleashing Capitalism” a legislative report by the SC Policy Council, a libertarian think tank.
Of the existing obstructionist regulation and taxes in South Carolina Walters says, “It makes my blood boil.” He went on to say, “we should let people conduct business [by eliminating hurdles] so they can prosper.” Recently, Republican Representative “Jake” Knotts called Jeremy a “pit bull” and the right man for the job. He has always had a “Don’t Tread on Me” mentality, and is dedicated to restoring both our economic and personal freedoms.
