South Carolina Chamber of Commerce endorsed Tom Young for S.C. House District 81 in a letter sent to the candidate. As the state’s leading business organization, the S.C. Chamber represents the “unified voice” of businesses across the state.

“The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, the state’s largest broad-based business organization, is pleased to announce our endorsement of Tom Young for House District 81, Aiken County,” said Hunter Howard, Chairman and CEO of the SC Chamber said in the letter. “We thank you for your commitment to representing the people of South Carolina who each need good jobs, a competitive state economy, and a pro-prosperity working environment to ultimately raise our citizens’ income. The South Carolina Chamber is proud to support you.”

“I am honored to have the support of the South Carolina Chamber. We have a shared dedication to building our economy through pro-business policies and promoting job growth in our state and region. My platform – my Plan for Palmetto Progress – is modeled after Chamber initiatives of job growth, lowering the tax burden, strengthening our schools, and cutting wasteful spending in state government. I look forward to working with the Chamber when representing the constituents of Aiken County if elected,” said Young.

Tom Young won the popular support of House District 81 in a four-way Republican Primary on June 10th with almost 47% of the votes cast. He will be participating in the Republican Runoff on June 24th.
