Local businessman Steven Long filed to run for the South Carolina House of Representatives on Thursday with the Spartanburg County Voter Registration and Elections Office. Long had previously announced his candidacy in January.
“I’m excited to file for office and I look forward to the upcoming election. We have been getting good responses from the voters in Boiling Springs and Inman, and I’m confident that we will win in June and in November,” Long said. “People are fed up with politicians in Columbia that dance around the issues but won’t tackle them head on. They’ve ignored our roads, they refuse to pass ethics reform, and they can’t even pass a simple Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. We need new leadership and that’s why I’m running for office.”
Mr. Long will be running in the Republican primary to be held on June 14th, 2016.
